Making utensils enables me to dwell in the moment of appetite, where the anticipation of satiation moves the body through the world of food materials. It is a movement driven by desire and guided by memory, by ancestry, and by our sense of self. A utensil extends the body and transforms the energy of this movement into purposeful action. The verbs of the kitchen are not only the processes of food preparation – grind, separate, season, ream, drain – they are also metaphors for our internal processes of combustion and transformation.
