Darwinian Spoons

2018. Red clay, glaze.

Darwinian Spoons uses the study of finch evolution as a design methodology. Diversifying from a single species, the birds began to fill their own specific niche. This project adopts this method of adaptability as a design methodology. Starting with identical unbaked clay spoons, small adjustments to each a new functionality. In this way, the objects do not compete with one another, but compliment each other as a collection.
