For more than forty years I have been carving spoons by hand using
native hardwoods, usually from our own forest, sometimes given to us by
friends. The spoons are for the most part made
using traditional tools and methods, splitting them from the log then
shaping them with hatchet, drawknife, spoke shave and gouges. This
orients the spoon with the grain, making it stronger, and means a
more interesting one-of-a-kind piece as I work with the natural
features of the wood.
My spoons are finished with
much careful sanding to a smooth satin touch and are finished with a non-toxic edible oil. Most are made to be used, whether in the kitchen,
for serving or simply for
stroking. As artists and artisans we enjoy working with wood in this
fashion. I do sign each spoon in an inconspicuous area on the back of
the handle ...
