Spoons ready to be picked up and a new group being carved now.
Sold all my spoons at the open studio which was a great success. I didn’t realise that other people love spoons as much as I do. (Actually I like all cutlery that has an interesting design). I have started another little group now. The tiny 10cm spoons are for little ceramic pots of jam or similar and the longer fish spoon is the first baby spoon I have made and is of course for my grandson Mason. They are all made from huon pine which grows only in Tasmania /Australia and as the cutting of live huon pine trees stopped in 1960 they are a bit special. Fortunately there are still cut pieces of timber available around Australia. I describe the scent of this tree as vanilla and menthol. Oh and I just learn’t a great new word to describe what I am carving: treen.
