  2. Totally wanting to make something like this now for my own kitchen on a smaller scale – maybe I could use children’s utensils

    In the US it’s called “plumber’s tape”, meaning the metal strapping, not the Teflon tape. There exist online sources. The type used in the lamp is also available in the UK.

    It really is fantastic. Is this perforated steel tape readily available in hardware stores in the US, do you know? I’ve never seen it and seems I would’ve noticed it before now. Also, how did you make holes in the cutlery?

    This reminds me of Cruela Devile from the 101 Dalmations.

    I think it wonderful. Lovely.
