Since we last checked in Anders Bollman’s Oddwood project has flourished from a simple selection of hand-carved spoons into a whole range of salvaged and re-purposed products. The Swedish creative is a graphic designer by day and busies himself with whittling in his spare time, making benches, chairs, vases and cutting boards for anyone with an interest in timber.
Recent projects include a selection of spoons to accompany one-off ceramic bowls by Karin Hagen and a selection of stools and benches fashioned from split logs. Personally I’m still just a sucker for the spoons with that beautiful tree logo burned into them. They give me – wait for it – wood!
