Butter Knife


Designed for the Table Knife Project / FKK

The tool, humanity's first technology, asserted control onto chaos. Our ancestors' primitive hand-axes ordered the world. We still seek to tame the wild into the cultivated. 
This butter spreader is bone china porcelain. A minimalist slender rectangle gently twisted to blade and handle. Its sprayed texture echoes fossils. Kilned into continuum.
From beast bone to cultured ceramic. From the raw to the cooked. From the hunt to the hearth. From bone to bone china.
