Tiers

I found this piece in the entrance courtyard of the new Four Seasons Hotel in the Yorkville neighbourhood and at first glance I thought it was a fountain but it isn't. Then I thought it might be a type of planter but it isn't that either. It must be art. But it reminds me of a tiered pastry serving dish and I can't get that out of my mind. It is really tall as you can see from the pic - would hold a lot of pastry!

Maybe it's been put there before a MAJOR party. :-)

My guess would be the tiered pastry serving dish. It certainly goes get one's attention. You could bake a big cake and put it up on that first tier! :))

I think Lowell is right about this...

I thought the same as you Pat, a fountain! I'm guessing the tiered cake stand is the go and I like it very much :)

It is neat looking but seems out of place.

That's exactly what I think it looks like too! Very interesting.

Let's just agree it's a sculpture. It stands out well!

I completely enjoy seeing objects of art like this. It's even more incredible to stop and admire such a piece and have others give their thoughts as well. Art that works, well beyond the artist's touch!

I want that. I'd make a fountain of it. :-)

Stephanie said...

Interesting piece but must say it looks out of place.

I do like the idea of a lot of cakes but I have to say it's perfect for a fountain...

What is it? A wanta be fountain?

Maybe it will suddenly spout water on a really hot, humid summer's day?

Jack said...

It would also work as a candy tray.

Randy said...

A cupcake holder maybe?

I think chocolate candy on the top tier. And a ladder to reach it ))))
