Every day for a year the young norwegian designer Stian Korntved Ruud carves a wooden spoon. His project "The Daily Spoon" is a study in the aesthetic and functional qualities of the spoon.
He makes all the spoons in a traditional way with only hand tools. The point of this is to actively cooperate with the
material, in this case wood. In a modern industrial production the machines overwrites the wooden structures and natural growth pattern. When using manual hand tools the design collaborates with the wood structure
during the forming process. This underpins all the spoons unique qualities.
