A collection of eating tools
In a world where the food system is so complicated that I no longer know where my food comes from and how it is produced, I feel the longing for a new relationship with what we eat.
This collection of sensual eating objects creates a stage for food to be presented on and savoured from, in an attempt to increase the eater’s awareness of it’s fragility and preciousness. With soft shapes crafted in stoneware and porcelain, they are a tactile trigger for our senses. Not being cutlery nor plates, these tools evoke in us a more intuitive way of eating, giving new values to our food. They transform the act of eating into a moment of full attention, gratefulness and pleasure.
The organic shapes invite us to use the tools in our own, singular way. They become an extension of our hands and fingers, literally bringing us closer to what we eat. Contrasting with the conventional way of eating with fork, knife and plate, a family of shapes and sizes can be used in various ways to present and enjoy our food.
JOIN ME IN MY JOURNEY TO RECONNECT WITH OUR FOOD
The collection will consist of 7 eating tools in different sizes to serve a complete dinner with. Until now I managed to design 3 eating tools, but without your support I won’t be able to go on and the series will stay incomplete…
So, if you want to help me building a new relationship with our food, support me and make a donation at Voordekunst! I will be forever grateful.
