I began hand-carving native NH hardwood into spoons 5 years ago. I enjoy transforming the beauty of our local trees into interesting and useful utensils with functionality and form. I use hand tools to split, carve and shape my spoons. I often take advantage of the natural curve of a branch. Sometimes a particular feature, such as a knot or the aging spault of the wood, dictates the form a spoon takes. The pith (center line of a split log) will often indicate whether the spoon will be for a righty or lefty. I smile when someone picks up a spoon of mine to appreciate the features that inspired me to carve it. My aim is to create a spoon that’s lovely, practical and feels right.
