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.

    • 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.

    • 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”.

  3. You create tree poetry with your hands, Jack. What a beautiful, animate relationship. I still feel the living tree looking at these pictures of your work.
