While gathering inspiration for our friend Julie's new bakery, we found a bunch of vintage kitchen utensils, seemingly shaped by a single piece of wire. The flow and movement of these utilitarian pieces made them feel like works of art, and immediately brought to mind the early works of Alexander Calder--drawings and wire sculpture made from a single line. "Stick figures" never looked so good...
