Tiffany & Co.—The Greenhouse Project: Marilyn Minter


THE NEW STERLING SILVER GREENHOUSE
FROM OUR HOME & ACCESSORIES COLLECTION TOOK FOUR MASTER
SILVERSMITHS NEARLY 1,000 HOURS TO CRAFT BY HAND. THE GREENHOUSE PROJECT My name is Marilyn Minter
and I’m a visual artist. My vision for the Tiffany greenhouse was to fill it with beautiful
Tiffany objects until they exploded out through
the windows, out through the roof. And so we have been
breaking glass also to add to it and create this idea of an explosion
with Tiffany products all silver lighting
it with the turquoise signatures style from Tiffany. And then I’m going to put a
piece of frozen glass in front of it, and then we’re going to write in
sterling silver which is the font name T or T in company, and see how it melts and that’s
how the shots are going to work. I think art is about your
vision and in my case I make art about the world I live in and I like the idea that
Tiffany is focusing on women artists in this projects, it’s made it
much more interesting to me. For any institution like Tiffany to
get behind women and promote them in this project, I admire that.
