Experiments In Design—Assignments for Design: Creation of Artifacts in Society

1.1 Good Design: My favorite spoon

12 years ago, this spoon was purchased at one of those all-purpose markets in New York's Chinatown, the ones peddling super cheap housewares and those ridiculous slip-on shoes with the embellished mesh toe that every girl had to have. The spoon probably cost around $2. Maybe less. It has been worth every penny. Painted stoneware with good heft. And green, like my last name. Most of the soup I have consumed since its purchase has been aided by this perfect utensil. (I eat a lot of soup.)
