These eating spoons are my standard design. Use them for cereal, soup, desserts, ice cream, in fact anything that you’d normally use a spoon for. And consider using one when you might otherwise use a fork – they’re good for curries and stews as well. The bowl width is around 45mm, and the total length of the spoon is around 18-20cm. I always work with “found” wood, so although the shape of the spoons will remain similar, the design will flex with the wood, and the wood will always be unique.
Wood care instructions
USE – WASH – REPEAT
All my wooden utensils are made to be used on a daily basis. They can be hand-washed with detergent and hot water, just like any other kitchen utensil, but they will not appreciate being left soaking for long periods in water. And they must not be put in a dishwasher.
Over time, with use, your wooden utensil will build up a patina that is unique to you, and your usage. Part of the beauty of wooden ware is observing this change over time.
All the utensils are sealed with linseed oil, and in some cases there might be a slight taste or feel of oil during the first few uses. This will pass with normal washing.
