Spoontaneous: I Carve Wooden Spoons Into Fun Sculptures
Over the last 5 or 6 years I have explored the creative process within the constraints of the wooden spoon. The making of wooden spoons dates back to antiquity and the design possibilities are still limitless.
Some of the spoons I carve are functional, meant to be used in the kitchen, but the majority of them are nonfunctional and even dysfunctional.
Below is a sampling of the 300+ spoons carved this far. Thanks for having a look.
