"I really love your website and came across your images of large spoons
whilst looking on the internet, I just wanted to let you know that my
husband Mark Reed, is a sculptor and also has a love of spoons!
He made the Spoon Bench in 2004, when we had our first little boy,
while he was teaching our sons to eat, the humble spoon became highly
significant, as a means of giving nourishment and independence. He saw
how, in a baby’s hands, an adult spoon is enormous and out of
place and this observation led to the stainless steel spoon bench,
unfamiliar in it’s size and place, and seemingly
levitating. The Spoon Bench can take up to 4 people sitting
relaxing on the handle, the ladle section can be a birdbath or
we’ve made it as a dogs bowl and in the image it holds a dollop
of Oscar Reed! We have also made one as a diving board for a swimming
pool. Last year we made one as a memorial for a cherished patient (who
had a particular penchant for spoons) of a nursing home in
Hertfordshire in England but as a sculpture standing upright and
with a message and name/ date inscribed upon the back of the handle, as
if a makers mark on a silver or stainless steel spoon. "
