Art Nouveau Spoons

A much more historical contextual research than usual! I have found myself inspired by Art Nouveau designs, particularly in metal as I have been looking at nature and growth. Here are a few images of works I have come across while browsing online that really helped me in the design development process – unfortunately not all of which I was able to caption.
