I have a soft spot for spoons and wood. You can probably imagine my excitement when I discover these beautiful handcrafted spoons by Norwegian designer Stian Korntved Ruud. And we’re not talking about just a couple, but 365 varieties of hand-carved spoons!
Since April last year, Stian has committed to carving one spoon a day to explore working with different types of wood, and to improve his skills. He has been posting updates and pictures of his handmade creations on his Instagram. He has decided on the spoon as his carving object due to its simple function and size. Every piece is made in a traditional way using hand tools. The entire spoon collection will be exhibited as part of “Norwegian Wood Art” at Galleri Format Oslo from May 21 – Jun 21.
… Just so you know, I have a hard time narrowing down my favorite spoons to under ten. If I have a choice, you’d probably see all 365 spoons here on this blog …
