"People look at me rather oddly when I tell them I make non-functional wooden spoons-non-functional in that you wouldn't use them in the kitchen, but functional in that they are objects of beauty. My spoons are sculptures; my sculptures are spoons, not spoons to stir the soup, but spoons to stir the soul." -Norm Sartorius.

This publication marks the exhibition Spoons to Stir the Soul: The World of Norm Sartorius, the first retrospective exhibition of the life and work of extraordinary spoon carver Norm Sartorius.

The book works as both a biography of Norm Sartorius and a catalogue of his work. From his early days as the son of a country doctor to his beginnings in wood craft and eventual growth into an influential spoon carver.
