When Brion Kerlin sees an old silver spoon or fork, he sees raw material and endless possibilities.
“Just call me the Happy Fork Bender,” Kerlin said from his Urbana home and workshop.
Kerlin makes jewelry and other pieces of art for his business called Spoonforkcreations. He can be seen every Saturday morning, from May to November at the Urbana Farmer’s Market on The Square, where he sets up shop and sells his products. It makes him really happy when customers enjoy his work.
“It’s almost as good as money,” he said.
