This lovely Silver Birch was given to me by a kind neighbour in Wiltshire. A sweet A-symmetric teaspoon, with an elegant shape and gentle crank. It fits and feels so nicely in the hand. Perfect fit for a right-hander. 

A sweet long handled teaspoon, perfect for sugar, getting the last olive out of the jar, or even eating your yoghurt and using the flat edge to scrape around the bottom of the tub.

The leaf design has been ‘Tattooed’ Into the wood, using the ancient art form of Kolrosing. Kolrosing Is a method where you cut the design into the wood using a sharp knife, fill the cut with a colour pigment (I use cinnamon), and then burnish the wood To close and seal over the top of the colour, trapping it into the wood.

Carved by hand tools only, axe and knife, in Wiltshire woodlands. Knife finished, no sanding, to create a smoother finish. 

Finished with Tung oil.

Time for completion: approx 2 hours.

Length: approx 16 cm

Care Instructions

This is a hand carved wooden item and knife and tool marks may still be present. Please do not put wooden items in the dishwasher. Hand wash only with warm soapy water and leave to air dry. You may wish to oil your spoon every once in a while if it starts looking thirsty. A coat of food safe oil (tung oil, nut oils etc) will nourish the wood and keep it looking fresh.
