Wooden Spoons

There is something incredibly satisfying about eating with wood, much as generations before us have done at every mealtime. The sound of metal on china, the constant clink clink before every mouthful, is surely such an un-natural way to dine – yet in this age of mass manufacture this is what we have grown accustomed to.

The majority of my spoons have been hand carved, using razor sharp axes and knives, from straight grained radially cleft fresh green wood – straight from the tree or log. Sometimes spoons are taken tangentially, because that is what both the spoon and the wood dictate, and sometimes particularly special spoons are taken from crooked sections.

All of my spoons are designed to be used daily, just like you would with a metal spoon – the only drawback is that they need to be hand washed in warm, soapy water and air dried, they don’t like dishwashers!

All spoons are finished with cold pressed food safe linseed oil.  Over time and use they will develop a beautiful patina and may occasionally benefit from a wipe over with any food safe oil to preserve them for future generations.
