UPDATE: We successfully funded the Kickstarter Campaign on February 22, 2014. We raised over $17,000 with the help of 338 backers. Head on over to www.standardspoon.com to get the latest on this new and exciting design project!
With the beginning of 2014, Work of My Hands is doing something new. We've been experimenting with product design and development as a creative way to use our design sensibilities and project management experience. This month we're launching a new brand of high-quality bar spoons!
"Bar spoons?" you may ask with a quizzical brow. Yes, bar spoons. Our love of craft industries directs itself toward art, clothing, home design, culinary prowess, and a healthy appreciation of the craft cocktail. It just so happens that this time, the light bulb clicked on over the cocktail industry, and we've run with it.
Standard Spoon - A new brand of high quality bar spoons
This new bar tool initiative is called Standard Spoon, and the flagship product is a brand new design, never before made or seen or sold. It spins effortlessly in a glass full of ice, and is the easiest way to stir a cocktail. We've got lots of information about the new project at the new website (and blog): www.standardspoon.com
For those not familiar with the use or purpose (or existence) of bar spoons, check out this little video for a quick demo, and a bit of humor courtesy of Shawn Michael:
Kickstarter Preview & Launch Party
Shawn Michael and I have been working diligently to bring this new idea to a place where it's ready to be seen, used, and sold. The time has come! We'll be launching the Standard Spoon on Kickstarter on January 22nd. For those of you reading this post, there are two ways for you to get a sneak peek at the spoons before we launch:
