Spoons I admire

When I began this blog, I intended it as a sort of digital scrapbook for myself.  This page is where that effort started.  I was not always as precise with attribution as I could have been in those early days.  If you see something here that you made, drop me a line and I will give you credit.

Jarrod Stone Dahl.  I love his handles.   Narrow yet shapely.  And the bowl shape is sublime.

Such a variety of forms.  Endless inspiration here...

by Yoav Baitner
I love the idea of a "keel" on the top of the handle that seems to dive through and continue under the handle...

Two by Peter Follansbee, with great chip carving.
Follansbee. love the use of lines and chip carving.

Great negative space!  Lines and chip carving.

Oliver Pratt.  Love the stab carving.

From Jarrod StoneDal's site, from the MN "Spoon Gathering."  An antique spoon. I love the way the rim of the bowl meets the stem.  Also, the wonderful form of the handle contrasting with the grace of the stem.
