Provincial Dinner Ware by Annie Tung
by sabine7 / February 2, 2010


Artist and designer Annie Tung uses the communal activity of sharing a meal as a metaphor for the sense of community that is needed to protect our wildlife.The notion of tableware leads to a literal interpretation of dinner wear, as embroidered napkins are given central openings in order that they be worn around the neck rather than tucked in. But the deeper theme of these textile pieces is the fragility of Canada's flora and fauna. Each napkin in the set of 26 bears either an official provincial flower or bird, some of which are endangered species.

Seen at the Assets & Values exhibition, the napkins caused one onlooker to state very clearly, "These must be for the elderly."
