Just as you can’t keep away from the farmer’s market to try out all the produce newly coming into season, it’s hard to keep away from the flea market, where that totally cool, vintage cutlery service refuses to let you go home without it. Let this happen a few times and you’ll have a fork explosion, and that could hurt. But what to do with the stuff you’re not using anymore? Unlike last week’s farmer’s market goodies it doesn’t naturally disappear.
The folks at Boing Boing today showcased artist Osian Batyka-Williams, who is putting all those old forks, knives and spoons to good use elsewhere in the kitchen or dining room by making chairs out of them. Hope the tines are faced the right way!
