Medieval style eating spoon - Sycamore
Made from locally sourced spalted Sycamore 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. its octagonal handle is very tactile and twirls easily in the fingers for a different eating experience.
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.
