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.
A great belly dancer, but after getting discovered at a street performance by a well-known choreographer, the "Ballerina" fell in love with the gracious postures and the spinning movements of ballet. This little mouse had never seen a more promising ballerina and decided to dedicate all of his time to make her the best. Now, two years later, they are seen together on red carpets all over the world, not only as colleagues but as the most shining couple of today.
