I have heard feedback that some of our readers come here looking for Cutlery themed artwork to decorate their kitchen or new restaurant. Finding flatware themed wall hanging art is a little difficult to find. So this week we are going to post about a couple of pieces that look pretty good to me. And here’s the second one.
From Stupell the “Home Retro Look Fork Spoon Rectangle Kitchen Wall Plaque” has got a pretty long title for a pretty good priced piece of cutlery artwork. This fork and spoon is a high quality lithograph of sturdy half-inch thick MDF fiberboard. It is 15 x 11 inches in size and would be a perfect for a smaller kitchen or dining room.

I have heard feedback that some of our readers come here looking for Cutlery themed artwork to decorate their kitchen or new restaurant. Finding flatware themed wall hanging art is a little difficult to find. So this week we are going to post about a couple of pieces that look pretty good to me.
The first is “Head West Canvas Art, On the Table” which has a classic art style named if I’ve ever heard one. This fork, knife and spoon is three separate 1.5 inch deep digitally printed canvas that each measure 8 x 20 inches. I believe that`s called a triptych?
PS – The title listing on Amazon says “Set of 2” but you do get three pieces according to a purchaser.
Head West Canvas Art, On the Table
We posted a week or so back about the Kuma Spork Kickstarter project. Well it turns out a very very similar product already exists and is for sale. The Eco-Friendly Stainless Steel Spork has a slightly different design with longer tines and less color options and maybe a smaller spoon bowl. But I think I like this one a little better, I wish I could do a eating test with both. You will have to decide which is better by the photos like me. This does falls under our category of Everyday Carry Cutlery.
This Eco-Friendly Stainless Steel Spork is 1/4 inches long made of 18/10 stainless steel. Dishwasher safe and Made in China.
PS – Looking at the photo, are the bowls facing up or down? Weird optical illusion 🙂

This must be big new as I’ve got three different articles about it sent to me in the last two days. I’ve listed the articles below but in brief the highlights are:
- The Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report that categorized disposable silverware, cups and plates as “personal items” that should no longer be bought by federal agencies for their employees unless they have “specific statutory authority to do so”.
- In 2009 the Department of Commerce had allowed the weather offices to supply hand sanitizer, paper goods and plasticware in response to the H1N1 flu outbreak. In 2013, Commerce determined that those offices could no longer provide “disposable plates, cups, and cutlery.”
- Now you have to bring your own disposable flatware; “It is axiomatic that pubic funds are generally not available for the cost of personal items for the public’s employees,” GAO wrote.
So, is this a good thing? Are we getting rid of disposable cutlery which is bad for the environment? Should we start using Everyday Carry Cutlery?
