“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 forth piece in that project, carved from lightly spalted rowan wood and decorated with crisp carved lines across the neck of the spoon, in direct contrast to the verticle lines in the piece of wood. This long handled spoon would make an ideal serving spoon, perfect for getting things from the bottoms of jars. It has been finished with a crisp toolmarks from a razor sharp knife that will grow ever more beautiful with age, and sealed with a coat of raw, food grade linseed oil, to protect it.
Look after your wooden spoons – wash them gently in hot soapy water and leave them to dry. Don’t put them in the dishwasher!
