About the Edition

Brass Tooth is macabre, comical and dysfunctional. By hugely exaggerating the size of the common molar, Shrigley plays on our fear of the dentist’s chair, but confounds us by making it in solid, heavy brass.

Brass Tooth is one of the heaviest small artworks that I have made. I imagine it will appeal to dentists and other people who are interested in teeth. It could also be used for cracking nuts with. (David Shrigley, 2014)
