“JoJo Carves a Spoon a (work) Day” is a project that spanned 3 weeks in September 2018. I carved one spoon every work day, to reinvigorate my interest in spoons and explore new designs. The results show a journey through design, and are a true reflection of my emotional journey as I continued through the project.
This is the eighteenth piece in that project, carved from hard dense pale wood. Inspired by traditional Mary Rose spoons, this lovely big bowl with a tapered handle would be perfect for soup, or as a sweet serving spoon. It has been finished with a crisp toolmarks from a razor sharp knife that will grow ever more beautiful with age, and left unoiled to let the pale wood shine through.
Look after your wooden spoons – wash them gently in hot soapy water and leave them to dry. Don’t put them in the dishwasher!
