Alder Eating Spoon

Alder Eating Spoon

Handcarved Alder eating spoon, "desert" style/size.  205mm L.  Finished in flaxseed oil.  A personal use spoon, maybe for the morning porridge or cereal!

 

Wooden eating and cooking spoons, and those used for other purposes,  have a wonderful history dating back thousands of years.  Not only functional and pleasantly tactile to use, they may be also regarded as "a kind of functional sculpture.  That they also serve a purpose beyond their form is, I believe, what can make them exceptional." - Joshua Vogel, The Artful Wooden Spoon.  With every spoon I make I hope to  achieve a balance of form and function, but more than that to make a versatile, beautiful, utensil which is a joy to use.  

  • Care Instructions

    Just wash in warm soapy water, or brush under running cold tap, rinse and immediately towel dry (not dishwasher safe).  To rejuvenate the wood once or twice a year wipe on a generous coat of mineral, flaxseed/linseed oil (NOT boiled  linseed), tung or walnut oil.  Let soak overnight before polishing off any excess.  Do not use vegetable oil it will become rancid.
