I spent today arranging collections of spoons, vessels and found objects in the garden studio. The intention this year is to bring together groupings where there is a narrative and interplay of form, material and texture, being mindful of retaining the method, history and provenance of the making process. I use only simple timeless tools, the axe, the froe, the maul and the knife. I don’t want the vessels to feel machine made, the presence of the hand is essential. Green wood is buttery, fragrant, clean and quiet. Seasoned wood on the other hand can be dusty, dry, noisy and rather uncompromising in comparison. #greenwood #handcarved #handcrafted #handmade #carvedspoon #woodspoon #spoon #walnutspoon #beechspoon #livebark #madeoftree #gianthogweed #corrugatedcardboard #madeinsomerset #craft #designermaker #collection #group #eclectic #vscocam #livefolk #kinfolk #cerealmag
