Jeffrey Clancy's Salver
and Bud Vase
, cast and fabricated of lead-free pewter, boldly address the intersection between contemporary art and traditional craft. Starting with well-known historical models of utilitarian metalwork, Clancy reimagines the past with an irreverence for conventional expectations of design. Here, in these surreal objects of unexpected beauty, the shiny upper section of the bud vase melts into a Dali-esque puddle of molten pewter, and the salver's densely textured tray is supported by legs that resemble discarded chicken bones.
Clancy's work has been exhibited at the Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery in Washingtion, D.C., The Society of Arts and Crafts in Boston, and recently in a collaborative dining project with Steinbeisser Experimental Gastronomy, Amsterdam. A comprehensive article on Clancy was published in Metalsmith
magazine in 2013.
