Sporks

A few Hazel sporks that ive made of late, really got into making these and thoroughly enjoyed it, the simplicity of carving the flat style of utensil made a pleasant change from the normal cranked handle style of spoon i tend to make these days.


Sycamore Serving Spoon

Small Sycamore serving spoon, the rough shaping was done with the axe and the refinement with my Ben Orford pick knives, the spoon has an overall tooled finish.

Hazel Spork

Something a bit different to the norm, carved from Hazel and given a sanded finish, the spork is 17cm in overall length and the bowl section is 4cm at it's widest point.
