In Wanders’s imagination, five classic household utensils: "The Jester", "Candyman", "Strongman", "Ringleader", and "Ballerina", have come to life as theme sculptures destined to become family heirlooms, to be collected and passed on from generation to generation. The five objects are predominantly made of stainless steel with a few details in different materials. Their method of production — halfway between industrial production and craftsmanship — highlights one of the features most appreciated about Alessi in today’s world. Each of the five objects in the collection is produced in a limited edition of 999 pieces.
The circus is filled with wonderful personas that all play their small part in the spectacle. Each character in this iconic series surprises with its own personality and specific historical carnival relevance to be treasured.
Obsessed by opening bottles, wine-drunk joker, "The Jester", expresses himself not only with words but with sounds in general. Always laughing, shouting, jumping, maniacally gesturing, "The Jester" does anything to get in the spotlight. Constantly corking up bottles with his spinning dance moves, more than once "The Jester" has accidentally screwed himself stuck into different random objects. He has never been stuck for very long though, as there are always people around to unscrew him - and the party continues!
Corkscrew in 18/10 stainless steel. Limited edition of 999 numbered copies and 9 artist’s proofs.
