How many ways can one redesign an everyday object, like a spoon? If you’re like Stian Korntved Ruud and you create one once a day, you’d have 365 beautiful variations, which is exactly how many spoons Ruud carved for his project entitled Daily Spoon.
Rudd explores the relationship between a spoon’s form and function using various woods, understanding that each type of wood comes with their own set of unique qualities. Rather than using machinery, he opted to create each spoon using traditional hand tools to give him a more intimate connection to the material. The end result is a collection of raw, simple, and thoughtful designs that speak to Ruud’s woodwork skills, aesthetic, and work ethic.
