The Art of Fruit

In some homes, fruit is always displayed so beautifully. In my home, it’s often a pile-up of a day’s score at the market in too small a bowl. The worst is that some fruits don’t go well together, or disappear below dominant apples and oranges and start decaying before you know it.

At Pecha Kucha Amsterdam, Rogier Martens showed how he, accidentally, solved this problem. He turned some of his glass experiments into an upside-down oriented fruit bowl, based on the Jonagold apple. True fruit art. This movie shows you how the mold-blowing of glass really works. Worth a look.

And from today, I’ll treat my fruit bowl as a canvas.
