Hand Carved wooden Eating Spoon - Fern pattern
Made from locally sourced Birch wood collected during work managing woodlands, this simple yet carefully thought out utensil, is for daily use in all sorts of shaped bowls and plates. It has an off set shaped bowl and cranked handle to favor a right handed person, and a small flat end for scraping up the last bit off food.
The handle has a chip carved and kolrosed fern leaf design stained with natural pigments.
I've enjoyed making spoons for 16 years and still like to tweak designs and try different woods, and enjoy the flow of production work.
Finished with cold pressed, food grade Swedish Linseed Oil. This produces a cured durable finish protecting the wood in a natural way.
Best not to wash in a dishwasher, and after many enjoyable meals, a light wiping of good quality cooking oil, will help to maintain the finish.
