While on a canoe trip in 2013, I was horrified to learn that I hadn't packed any cutlery. I didn't need a fork because chopsticks are so easy to make but I did need a spoon and chose to make the spatula, well, just because I had the materials. The photo of them below is foggy because I tipped my canoe early in the trip and my camera got wet... Really, it was a pretty good trip and I do enjoy canoeing. If you are interested in that trip, look here. Here is the link to another spoon I worked on.
All that to introduce this post about a man serious about spoons. Stian Korntved Ruud has been carving a spoon a day for, well, some time now. He has thrown away the desire to make standard spoons and has been exploring, um, 'spoonness'. I copied and pasted into Paint to display two of them and how one of them started.
Added a year and a half later: More from Ruud. Well, more pictures of his spoons.
