A serving ladle, carved and decorated by hand from local windfall maple wood.
The chipcarving on this curved ladle reminds us of tiny wake waves - gentle visual movement with 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 bowl of this spoon is angled flat, making it perfect for cooking and for serving. 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 1/4" at the widest.
