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.
