Spoon Root

Pear and osage.  Pot and spoon.  Turn and carve.  Root and hold.  Turn to bread.


carven pear wood spoon


roots grab earth


grow tall


charred a little for contrast


carved with prairie dwellers


wheat and bluestem on an osage vessel


also burned a little prairie fire


with the remnants of earlier dwellers


light as a feather


another pear wood spoon

  1. Wow – Now this, if I had the money, I would have to buy – That would be so lovely to drink from in Rituals ……. …… Out of Rowen I think – Magical …….. A labour of love …. When I’m gifted some Rowen a definite time of warmth, love and chilling to be had …… Thank you so much for sharing.

  2. Dude, these are just too beautiful! I love the direction with the etching and the charring, especially on these warmer woods. Thank you for sharing these.

    1. Thank you, Mikey. I am glad that you like them. I am enjoying incorporating the carving and texture on the vessels and spoons -another level of the merging of the disciplines.

    1. Thank you, Astrid. I appreciate your feedback on the design of the pieces. always looking for that place of balanced tension between elements, like “light and tender” and “defined and strong”.
