Hand carved wood spoons can be functional not just decorative.
A big box, mass produced wood spoon will never last as long as a handmade one.
These 2 guiding principles drive me to create hand carved, functional wood spoons. Each spoon is created with a purpose in mind; cooking, measuring, eating, tasting or scooping. If cared for properly a hand carved wood spoon can last for many years. All of the spoons I create are hand sanded to a smooth finish and then treated with a food safe wood butter.
