Artist Turns Old Silver Kitchen Utensils Into Blooming Flower Bouquets

What do you do with your old utensils? Sell them at a garage sale? Or, do you simply toss them in the trash because you have no idea what to do with them? How about turning them into a realistic floral arrangement?

British artist Ann Carrington has transformed ordinary silverware into an abundant floral arrangement.

Modeled after real-life floral arrangements, these unwanted scraps of aged kitchen utensils are turned into thin rose pedals; knives are turned into leaves, and forks into hydrangeas, budding bulbs, and rosettes.

Each display sits in a pot or vase with a “ribbon” creating an authentic antique look. Described on her website as “a witty repurposing of everyday items which are transformed through often surprising and unlikely marriages of materials and method.”
