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. With soft shapes crafted in ceramics, they are a tactile trigger for our senses. Not being cutlery nor plates, these tools evoke in us a more intuitive way of eating, transforming the act into a moment of full attention.
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, this family of shapes and sizes can be used in various ways to present and enjoy our food.
After having successfully finished a crowdfunding campaign to cover the development costs, I am currently working with a ceramic production house in the Netherlands, as well as chefs and stylists to produce and present the first edition of five EVOKE eating tools.
