Meeting Barn The Spoon
After my hand in of the Pitt Rivers +1 I decided to go Hackney and visit Barn the Spoon. I was fortunate to meet the craftsman and have a discussion about his craft of creating beautiful hand made spoons. The Feeding axe I made took me around a day to make using hand chisels, Barn produced a few during the time I was with him talking. He used an Ade, this allowed him to whittle larger chunks of wood away without damaging the overall spoon. As a young designer I felt like it was a successful visit because I learnt a new way of creating objects fast, and also not to be over protective over model making, because I believe it’s a process of making you always improve upon due to seeing the negatives to improve for your final outcome.
