    The final episode of the saga. Look out for Barney's complete guide to knife-sharpening, soon to be released on Vimeo. Thank-you Barney, and good luck with the ongoing travels. (original blurb to follow) Barn the Spoon is a young man who loves to make spoons. He really really loves spoon-making, and does it lots. He learnt much of his woodken as a green-woodworking apprentice in Abbotts Wood, where Mike Abbott instructs the great and the keen in all aspects of green-wood-workery. So Barney is pretty clued up, as this first video will show you. In fact, he is ridiculously recondite in the art of spoon-making. When unencumbered by the camera, he knocked a beauty up in about 14 minutes, from round log to perfectly smooth eating shovel. He makes them in a paticular Swedish way, whereby he leaves the axe marks on the spoon - "it doesn't need to hide the way it was made" - and he also refuses to sand down his finished spoons - he didn't like the unknown chemicals of sandpaper - aluminium oxide and epoxy, we suppose - being rubbed into his clean and beautiful handiwork. Right now, Barn the Spoon is travelling over Britain. on foot (and bicycle?), and making spoons for all the good people he meets, in exchange for food and shelter. Being a woodsman, he can provide himself with food and shelter pretty well anyway, but it's nice to be involved with people, and to share the good hospitality that is offered. We know how he feels. And having an intense love of creating things from green wood, especially spoons, he naturally wants to see his passion spread contagiously amongst the good people of Britain. He is a man with a spoonful mission. So look out for Barney, on a footpath near you, with a spoon in his hand and a well-informed glint in his eye. Contact him on: barnthespoon@hotmail.co.uk

              Max Lamb's installation, Shelter, was produced for Johnson Trading Gallery. It was created by hand in Miami a few weeks ahead of the exhibition, using rudimentary tools as a way to carve out the shape. The shelter is meant to visitors a structure to hide and feel safe in as well as an insight into Max's youth. www.maxlamb.org www.johnsontradinggallery.com
