Vintage Flatware

On my last trip to Hyde Park New York my friends and I took a tour to the Culinary Institute of America and had a wonderful lunch there.
Out on the grounds was a wonderful fish statue and from a distance was just a fish. However when you got up close to it wow it was made out of old silverware really amazing to me


It is 12 foot long sturgeon made out of 700 knives 400 forks and 600 spoons took the artist 300 hours to complete. Eyes were made out of glass. I couldn't get a complete picture with my iphone. This is one of the fins pictured below
 It was very impressive and fun to see named Old Diamondsides by John F Sendelbach
 Wonder how he accumulated all the vintage flatware? maybe went to lots flea markets?

It was quite the place to visit , I went with my friends from Long Island Terry and Loriene

It is so hot here that I am just coming home from work and staying inside, I have been watering my flowers either after sundown or 6 am. I am planning a nice relaxing weekend inside maybe eating a quart of ice cream LOL

  6. A tour of the culinary institute sounds great. Wow, the fish statue is amazing! Yes, with heat index to 110 all weekend, ice cream is definitely on the menu, along with staying indoors with a good book. :)

  9. That fish sculpture is IN-credible! Yes, where did he get all that old flatware? Maybe he advertised for people to send it to him in return for a meal at the Institute! I could scrounge up a few forks and some knives and spoons in return for that!
