Everything I make is unique. Even when items are made to a pattern, the fact that they’re individually made means that each piece is slightly different. Like people.
These wooden eating spoons are based on a Gallician spoon and a design by my friend Robin Wood who asked if I would make this set of six as a commission.
The client wanted the spoons to be easily identifiable and we discussed various methods of subtly marking them. In the end though, as you can see, the gorgeous colours in the grain of this cherry wood have done the job better than we ever could have.
There’s just a little more of this wood left so I’ll be making some more work from it while it lasts. Keep watching here to see the new work.
