Carol Russell  Spoonmaker and teacher. Brisbane, Australia

Last crop of lemons from the tree. After 54 years, my mum is leaving. I gew up here in suburban Tasmania, I learnt about community. People had very little, they shared and swapped their skills and produce from their fabulous gardens. We knew everyone and they rallied in tough times. It was a good childhood.

Winter Spoons.

Some of the quirky Wonderful spoons carved by my students at @rawartworkshops. Fabulous night last night. Thanks to everyone who came and Tracey for organising the sessions.

Present to myself today. Mora Classic Original with a laminated blade. Becoming very good friends with The Knife Shop in Stafford and @theknifedoctor. Wonderful shop.

A new beginning. @creinamoore and myself are sharing a studio. Loads of work to do but I'm very excited to be around one of the most wholly creative people I know. #studio #creating

Beefsteak plant from Brazil. So thrilled to be carving in the Botanical Gardens today with @rustlingleaf. Surrounded by such inspiration. #spooncarvingclasses

Small walnut wasabi pot and server. Well actually it was a broken spoon. Chatting away to someone while I was whittling and snapped the handle. I like it like this, sometimes things don't go to plan but the alternative can be good too. Heading straight for my kitchen. #changeofplans #wastenothing
