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 hyper active sugar addict, "Candyman" stays in control only when his mouth is filled with sweets. As he travels the world, he collects sweet treats in his hat as tasty memories. Once, "Candyman" fell in love with a pretty Belgian praline, but as his addiction grew stronger than his love, the sweet piece of chocolate very soon ended up in his stomach. He has still not forgiven himself for his terrible action but will remember the delicious taste for eternity.
