DESCRIPTION

The game with the ball and with spherical forms characterizes the shape of this ice bucket. Silver bullets or gemstones spheres exercising practical functions as feet or handles accompany the bulbous vessel like satellites.

The Jade and Lapis versions speak to the tradition of Moser and Hoffmann of inlaying semi-precious stones into sterling silver as restrained surface decoration. Here, Tuttle elevates the stones to integral pieces of the form's function while still maintaining an ornamental ease.

In order to maintain the temperature, the ice bucket is double walled and therefore very massive - about 2.200 grams of fine silver.

 

About Wiener Silber Manufactur:

In 1882 Alexander Sturm, a trained gold- and silversmith, founded what is today Wiener Silber Manufactur in Vienna. By the turn of the century the silversmiths created objects for the intellectual elite that favored the simple lines of the Wiener Werkstätte.

After the Second World War, the manufacturer became involved with avant-garde again and partnerships with luminary designers and architects lasted until it closed its doors in 1982. It was the vision of an innovative tradition of service that inspired Georg Stradiot to found the Vienna Silver Manufacture in 2008. Today the company revives masterpieces from their collection of 11,000 drawings dating to 1882, as well as paves new roads in the production of silver with artists such as Erwin Wurm and Zaha Hadid.

Wiener Silber Manufactur uses a special alloy that contains 94% by mass of silver. Sterling silver, by comparison, only contains 92.5% of silver.
