A tiny tasting ladle, carved and decorated by hand from local windfall maple wood.


The motif on the handle of this small ladle reminds us of a sun shining down on one of those cute little foxes that can be made from a split-up log.


We carved this petite wooden ladle by hand, and formed the shape utilizing the curved grain of a maple tree 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 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.



10 1/4" long by 1 1/8" at the widest.
