A Taste for Craft

With the rise and cult of Top Chef, more and more people are becoming self-ascribed foodies. Be it a cooking process, or a utensil; beyond the Flemish still life or Warhol soup can, craft and culinary arts are quickly becoming wonderful companions.

"5 Blackbirds Bowl"
Dimensions: 5"w x 9"h
This bowl was a collaboration with wood turner Chet Brisco. Chet was unhappy with the rim of the bowl and was going to throw it away. That is a natural challenge for the Corliss' and they added the five blackbirds perched on the rim. The bowl never made it to a gallery and was sold to a major collector from Hawaii off of Chet's kitchen table.

Materials: Olive Wood, Ebony, Nickel

Charlotte Kruk

"M&Matador and FlaM&Menco"
Materials: discarded candy wrappers

Charlotte's sculptural responses to a "Cease & Desist" letter she received from M&M/Mars in 2001. It's taken ten years to fabricate this conceptual answer to their unreasonable claims. To help illustrate the investment of time, each piece of trash on the "M&Matador is hand beaded by her alone...to bead one bag of M&M's takes 2 hours and 20 minutes.....and that's "timed" after she mastered the skill.

About the Curator:

Carolyn Tillie obtained her MFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from CSULB in 1998. A week later, she started cooking school and was certified "Master Chef" from the Epicurious School in Los Angeles.

 

As a food-and-wine journalist, Carolyn's culinary writings have been published in Hugh Johnson's World of Fine Wine, Wine Business Monthly, Wines & Vines, and the Napa Register. As an artist, Carolyn's work provides a lighthearted and playful way for the wearer to express epicurean desires in an unexpected and imaginative way.  Her passion is to share a love of food and art through the creation of fashionably fun jewelry. Her work is currently being represented by a dozen galleries in five countries.
