It honestly took me a solid minute to wrap my head around the fact that these silver sculptures are actually composed entirely of old spoons, forks and knives. Look closely . . . do you see it? In her latest series Bouquets and Butterflies, artist Ann Carrington clusters spoons together, bends forks over each other and flares the tips of butter knives to create roses, peonies and tulips. Incredible, right?  This isn’t the first time the British artist has built sculptures out of discarded materials. You might remember seeing her two large sailing ships modeled out of pearls, pearl buttons and pearl chains. Oh, to live in Ann Carrinton’s brilliant brain . . .
