Viking Wolf Spoon

A hand carved wooden spoon made from a piece of driftwood found on a Suffolk beach, I think it's ash but can't be certain. This piece is designed in a Viking style with a stylised wolf's head handle overlapping onto a relatively large spoon bowl. These spoons are ideal for dropping in small pieces of jewellery or trinkets such as rings or bracelets when you take them off at the end of the day. But they are so tactile I prefer to display mine on a shelf or tabletop where I can easily pick them up to enjoy their silky surface, which has been rubbed down and lightly finished with natural bees wax.

 

Measurements: Length 9 inches. Width 4 inches. Height 1.5 inches.

 

Please note, my style of carving is natural and freehand predominantly using knives and chisels after initial roughing out. I don't believe in overworking my pieces to a clinical, pristine finish such as you might find on a cheap, machine produced item on the high street. I often work from found pieces of wood which may have twisted and cracked as they weathered and dried naturally. I like to leave the occasional old scar as well as others formed during the process of carving, to give each piece a unique character and form a direct connection back to my hands and hint at the previous life of the piece of wood
