Norm Sartorius, Spoon from a Forgotten Ceremony, 1994, dogwood, Smithsonian American Art Museum, © 1994, Norm Sartorius, Gift of John and Robyn Horn, 1994.75
Spoon from a Forgotten Ceremony is carved from salvaged dogwood. Norm Sartorius often uses discarded wood for his sculptures because he feels that even the tiniest scrap can be turned into a beautiful, lasting object. Sartorius named this piece Forgotten Ceremony because the double handle suggests an ancient ritual from a past life or lost civilization.
