A serving ladle, carved and decorated by hand from local windfall maple wood.
The chipcarving on this curved ladle reminds us of a needlepoint sampler - it has a little of everything while retaining a delicately balanced aesthetic.
We carved this wooden ladle by hand, and formed the shape utilizing the grain of a curved maple branch for extra strength.
Our process involves traditional spoon carving techniques, including finishing our spoons by knife and using no sandpaper. The handle of the ladle features a geometric chip carved surface design, and the bowl of the spoon is accented with light-catching rippled grain. The warm light-brown wood is smooth to the touch from our homemade vegan-friendly finish of organic solvent-free linseed oil and candelilla wax.
You will receive the exact same ladle as in the photos above. Hand wash only and re-oil with flax or linseed oil when needed.
11 1/2" long by 2" at the widest.
