The Lemon Shark Juicer

The Lemon Shark Juicer by Archie McPhee:

“The Lemon Shark Juicer got its name from juicing lemons, but there is an actual lemon shark. When you see an actual lemon shark underwater, its skin looks yellow and pitted like a lemon. The Lemon Shark juicer is a beautiful white porcelain shark on a 5-1/4″ porcelain dish, perfectly placed to squeeze the juice out of lemons and other citrusy fruit.”

“We do not want merely to see beauty, though, God knows, even that is bounty enough.  We want something else which can hardly be put into words–to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it.” – C.S. Lewis.

In Kate’s work this romantic ideal of union with the natural world conflicts with our contemporary impact on the environment.  Her pieces are in part responses to environmental stressors including climate change, toxic pollution, and gm crops.  They also borrow from myth, art history, figures of speech and other cultural touchstones.
