    I am a Mother of Pearl Caviar Dish. Dish the caviar, not the dirt.

     

  • Curator's Notes 

     

    Over the summer we got married. Our friend, Anna, gave us the best pre-wedding day gift from the historic Russ & Daughters grocers. It was one of their signature mini coolers containing caviar and all the complementing sides needed for the two of us to enjoy before the chaos of the big day. It was a thoughtful gift that we have to admit, started us off on a very bad and expensive caviar addiction. It also got us thinking about all the proper caviar accessories we were missing from our cabinets. It didn’t make sense to eat such a delicacy with the existing bowls and metal spoons we had. Caviar should be eaten with utensils of inert materials, such as shells, that are not chemically reactive so they don’t taint the flavour.

    We knew what we needed but everything we were encountering in the market didn’t suit our taste. This prompted us to think that what we were really looking for were utensils that felt precious and one of a kind. Something artisanal that was made by hand. We knew the perfect person who could help us – our friend Pat Kim, and that’s how this collaboration started. Pat's studio based in Brooklyn, Pat Kim Design, has been mastering mother of pearl as a material for quite some time so when we approached him with the idea, it was a natural fit. He was immediately up for exploring the concept. The result is a collection of caviar serving utensils for functional presentation that utilizes the natural shape of abalone shell while retaining the pureness in flavour of caviar.
