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
