This hand carved spoon is made from beautiful Copper Beech. The tree fell naturally in Alexandra Park during a storm in 2022.
Wood is a great material to use for eating with as it is a natural insulator (won’t get too hot or cold) and is naturally anti-bacterial. Using a wooden spoon is a beautiful sensory experience, nearly silent, soft on the hands and mouth and pleasing to the eye.
Each spoon is hand carved using only an axe and knives. All the tool marks are left on the wood, so no sanding here! Each facet and cut tells the story of a handmade object.
Dimensions: Approximately - 210mm x 35mm.
Finished with a hand rubbed food safe linseed oil/beeswax mixture.
Painted with Old Fashioned Milk Paint: which is the faithful recreation of an ancient homemade paint formula, containing just milk protein (casein), lime and natural earth or mineral pigments, making it environmentally friendly, non-toxic, VOC-free, baby-safe, food-safe & biodegradable.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
