  1. Beautiful photos as always, my friend. I am so impressed with your recent woodworking. It’s a true craft and art what you are able to do!

    1. Thanks Mikey, I appreciate it. I think I am finally getting to a place where I can actually make what is in my heart to make.

      1. It shows, my friend! I hope to finish an email to you soon. Thanks for your patience.

    1. Hi Tyler, it is always good to hear from you. Thank you, kindly. I would love to see what that spoon would look like after a lifetime of good use transporting stew.

    1. Thank you for the gracious word “heirloom”, Jana, like the weaving of story through generations.

  2. Incredible. I think this takes the definition of ‘spoon’ to a whole new level. They also look like religious objects. Which masquerade as spoons. How incredibly beautiful.

    1. It always delights me how you seem to see into the heart of what I desire to say, Steven. I look long for the sacred to flow out of my work: spoons, lambs, drawings, bowls, lettuces and wheat. Thank you for calling it out.
