The Teapot and A Gathering of Spoons

selections from the collection of
A spoon may often be seen as simply a mundane tool used to ferry food from bowl to mouth, but through
the skilled hands of the 50+ artists and craftspeople represented in this exhibit the spoon is transformed

for his collection. The exhibit features work by traditional Scandinavian and American carvers, as
well as non-utilitarian sculptural pieces like
