The “Zuccheriera” by Erwin Wurm is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the famous Saliera by Cellini.
The “Zuccheriera” is exclusively hand-forged. Every detail, every projection and every indentation has been hammered out by the silversmith from a single silver plate, in high-precision fine work involving thousands of hammer blows. A production method that – in terms of the amount of work and expertise involved – comes very close to the method used to create the Saliera, and which is an expression of the highest achievement of the silversmith’s art.
One piece of this limited edition has been presented as a gift to the Museum for Applied Arts in Vienna, where it can be seen in the Design Collection.
