Selected by François Bernard and Moda team for 10/10 exhibition, Tutti Frutti is a collection by Fabrica of ten limited-edition glass sculptures made for displaying or serving fruit in a fascinating combination of the pure clarity of glass and the natural wholesomeness of fresh fruit. Elaborate three-dimensional compositions – which stand up by themselves or are made to be hung – in a perfect balance between the multicoloured verve of different fruits and the fragility of glass. The pieces are proposed as original ways of showcasing and serving fruit – as subjects in balancing structures or suspended from the sky.
The collection includes Carmina by Sam Baron; the glass is seen only when it holds fruit, delicately placed in a frame as if hanging from a tree branch, or snugly set in a glass nest, the fruit is centrally positioned in the composition as if it were floating in the air.
Charlotte Juillard’s Summer Rain is as unexpected as a summer shower: strawberries seem to fall from the sky on this candelabra, held by a structure of six hanging tubes, each of which goes in a different direction.
Lastly, the legend of William Tell inspired Daniela Mesina’s Guglielmo!: the arrow splitting the apple is frozen in time as if attempting to fix a historical moment in glass.
Others projects by Valentina Carretta, Kirsty Minns, Mariana Fernandes, Catarina Carreiras, DavidRaffoul and Giorgia Zanellato.
