I’m working my way through a pile of crooked branches that I collected earlier in the year and carving them into serving spoons and ladles. You can predict to some extent how a green wood crook will split but you’re never completely sure and it’s exciting to split them open and find the spoon inside. Carving crooks day after day, I’m getting a lot of fluidity and strong shapes into these spoons, each one completely unique with it’s own character and personality.
Here’s the first of them.
