Spring 2017
Form exploration dealing primary with the act of preparing a salad. Restricting myself to only using fair curves, I set out to create a pair of flow form devices that enhanced the experience and movement associate with salad tossing and serving..


My process dealt primarily with the balance of curves used to create a pair of utensils that would be dynamic in form and in movement. In addition, it was necessary to pay attention the how each curve affected the ergonomics of the device. Rather than having the utensils be standalone artifacts, it was important to keep in mind how the salad tongs were essential as an extension of the hands using it.

Final form
