Spoons were made for the individual and often depicted a design of the persons crest or name. In this soapberry spoon, the shape is accurate but so is the design. Soapberries are illustrated on this spoon with ink in a realistic way, celebrating this small but nutritious little berry.



This piece of wood was a found off-cut, carved carefully with handmade and hand sharpened tools, spoon shapes formed, design prepared, sanded carefully, a coat of matte medium just on the blade, ink design over the blade, then a light coat of NaturOil.
