Until 1995, London’s infamous Bermondsey market was known as an ‘open market’ where you could sell stolen silver between the hours of sunset and sunrise. For this piece, I removed a single foot from a ‘stolen’ silver tray. This was replicated, stacked up and soldered into a very posh four-tiered cake form. The trick to the piece is that when inverted, it becomes a ‘bucket’ taking you from the high table back to the gutter.
