Artis ](http://www.artis-uk.com/)- the cutlery, tableware, glassware and barware supplier formerly known as John Artis - launched its new corporate identity at Hotelympia with a show-stopping display of animal sculptures showcasing its extensive portfolio of products.
The artful animals included crockery tortoises (below), a lion constructed from 178 pieces of cutlery (left), a glassware-crafted giraffe and a mother and baby bird on the nest styled from barware.
They formed a bold backdrop to the launch of the new 2012 Art of Artis catalogue.
