Hoobix Smex / Bear Spoon, 2022
alder and acrylic paint with Danish oil
(muted violet inner spoon colour, almost a dark brown)
10.5 " x 2.5" x 3.5"
by Veronica Waechter
This bear spoon was made with reference to old ladles which have crest figures going up the handle, similar to a small totem pole. This is the first spoon of its kind made by the artist and it was a sort of research activity after having spent time researching spoon shapes and figures from the northwest coast, which are held in museums across the country.
This item is great for display, as a gift, or for holding one small item in its ladle.
This piece of wood was found fallen, collected respectively, carved carefully with handmade and hand sharpened tools, slowly dried layer by layer, shapes formed, design prepared, sanded carefully, then painted and lightly oiled. Made with curious energy.
