The Illusion Cup

The Goldsmiths' Centre

£1,800.00 Sale price

Silver Cup with Golden Dome Inside
by Rupert Todd

The Illusion Cup juxtaposes classical and modernist profiles. Their defined edges are used to structure the light in a hue-shifted ‘infinity mirror’ effect alongside a gold dome insert. This insert also provides cooling without dilution, utilising the material properties of the silver to its advantage.

About this designer
Silversmith Rupert Todd’s sculptural pieces are inspired by the natural world in all its facets, both the eye of the spectator and rays of light, through their mirrored and opposed surfaces. The aesthetic and the aim are one, to engineer functional art from optics, metallic chemistry and balance, to the smoothness of a river-worn stone.

Materials
Sterling silver, gold-plate

Approximate size (H x Dia mm)
95 x 60
