Filigree is a timeless and meticulous artisanal process, and now the new tableware line from German sculptor Wiebke Meurer is turning heads by taking the age-old technique to a new level.
Complete with bowls, tea cups, saucers, and silverware in a new filigree design, Meurer cuts directly into the gold and silver objects to craft her designs.
The cutlery is more art than functional, seeing as the cups and spoons could not retain liquids, though they could serve as items to hold fruits or vegetables in a unique manner.
Meurer has works in the Saatchi Gallery and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, Art Genève in Switzerland, and the Gustavsberg Konsthall in Sweden, to name a few.
The pricing for Meurer’s filigree tableware has yet to be released, but more information can be found on her website.
