A well used spoon

Birch serving spoonNearly everything I make is designed to be used, whether it’s a chair, spoon, bowl or rake. I especially like it when someone meets me at a show and tells me how they’ve been using something they’ve bought from me. I gave this birch serving spoon to my friends Charlie & Alison at the end of last year and they tell me it’s been in daily use ever since for everything from stirring soup, cooking curries to serving up salad. Woodenware really starts to come alive through use, developing a patina and character that you really can’t achieve any other way and improving all the time.
