instagramSan Francisco artist and self-described "maker extraordinaire" Courtney Cerruti (@ccerruti) is no stranger to the world of craft. "I'm an artist and I make something everyday." A little over a year ago, Courtney was inspired by an artist's intricate drawings on wooden objects. With his work in mind and intrigued by later photos she saw of antique spoons, it wasn't until a friend posted a photo of spoons displayed decoratively on a restaurant wall that everything came together for her. She purchased a lot of 36 antique, handmade wooden spoons and set about finding collaborators for her idea—and the #3636project was born.
Courtney sought out artists throughout the United States and United Kingdom who worked in diverse media, but whose work would come together as a cohesive whole. "I was surprised by a few artists who created pieces in mediums outside their current work. Although Mike McConnell (@poopingrabbit) is both a painter and a sculptor, I was surprised by his choice to create a faux taxidermy squirrel from his spoon. Likewise, Lisa Solomon (@lisasolomon), who works with thread, embroidery and crochet, gave me a spoon that was painted. I love being surprised. Every spoon was so different and it kept the show interesting!" After receiving the spoons, Courtney brought them together for an exhibition at San Francisco's Paxton Gate (@paxtongate), where many of them have already sold—bringing recognition and profit to artists across the world.
