' The Brussells Sprout Testimonial ' a monumental miniature actual size - isbn 1-894897-09-9














What creature of this stature, in all of English common law, is so much loved and detested ? Those who love sprouts love to love them, those who hate sprouts love to hate them. We are united in our passion and few can feign indifference. Regarding the notion of scale, by and large considered by most aesthetes, to be the primary focus of sculpture. Ponder this, how would it be possible to monumentalize a Brussels sprout ? For one that is huge, would be confused with the cabbage; and one that is too small, would not be very much at all. In solving this problem, I've made this monument to the Brussels Sprout on the kawaii side of actual size.

'The Brussels Sprout Testamonial'- isbn 1-894897-09-9
Sing and shout and dance about, there's magic in the Brussels sprout, boiled up and served in butter, baked into a pie, I love to eat the Brussels sprout, to go without would make me cry.
Have faith and never ever doubt, there's magic in the Brussels sprout, in cheese sauce or in minestrone, I will stand and Testify, I love to eat the Brussels sprout, to go without I'd rather die!

This precious metal vegetable was originally produced to celebrate love, for the wedding of my Friend Jonathan Wreglesworth. Available in Sterling and Bronze I raise the price by $50, each and every time one is sold, so check back to see the current price of sprouts. 

Thanks to Mark Nishiguchi !
