Hand Carved serving spoon - wildlife decoration
Made from locally sourced Birch wood collected during work managing woodlands, this simple yet carefully thought out utensil, is for serving up good sized portions of food to the plate or bowl. These larger spoons take much longer to make but also allow a little more design.
A hooked section on the rear of the handle stops the spoon sliding into the pan, and can be used to hang up the spoon on a rack.
The larger handle has a chip carved and kolrosed birch leaf design stained with natural pigments. Overall length is around 12"
I've enjoyed making spoons for 17 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.
