    Lavaspoon eater sycamore and milk paint

    Lavaspoon – sycamore and milk paint eating spoon

    Length: 16 – 17cm (6 1/4 – 6 3/4 inches)
    Bowl width: 4.5cm
    Bowl length: 6cm
    Finish: hemp seed oil

    A sycamore eating spoon with my special red and black milk paint finish, folks at Spoonfest called them lavaspoons and the name has stuck. This is a standard item, I’m not posting separate pictures of each one. The length varies slightly but there is very little to choose between them. All the same and each different as Barn would say.

    The milk paint is applied thickly and sanded back to reveal the raised points on the facets. The final rub down is with 0000 wire wool and gives a super smooth finish that is just lovely to hold.

    Seaspoon sycamore and milk paint eating spoon

    Seaspoon – sycamore and milk paint eating spoon

    Length: 16.5cm (6 1/2 inches)
    Bowl width: 4.5cm
    Bowl length: 6cm
    Finish: milk paint and hemp seed oil

    A sycamore eating spoon with my ewer blue and white finish inspired by ripples on the sea (specifically the beaches at Llangrannog in Cardigan Bay). Hence the name, seaspoon – it’s not a teaspoon, it’s a seaspoon.

    The top surface of the handle is slightly hollowed and those little ripples are a tempting titillation for your thumb to explore.

    These are carved to a pretty consistent size and shape so you are buying a generic seaspoon eating spoon and not a particular one. They’re pretty hard to tell apart in truth unless you’re got 2 side by side. All the same but each different.

    lavascoops tablespoon sized coffee scoop

    Lavascoop – alder and milk paint tablespoon scoop

    Length: 9cm (3 1/2 inches)
    Bowl width: 4.5cm
    Bowl length: 4.5cm
    Capacity: 1 tablespoon (approx)
    Finish: milk paint and hemp seed oil

    A alder scoop that’s like a mini kuksa. It sits slightly laid back on its base and the bottom of the handle. It’s equally at home living in your coffe caddy or displayed on a kitchen shelf.

    The measure if pretty close to a table spoon. It’s a wee thing but just big enough for a medicinal nip of whisky if you should choose.

    I don’t recommend using for hot drinks – it might be fine but I’ve not done extensive testing and too many expresso may become a problem.

    Please note the blue and white version is called seascoop and you’ll find that elsewhere on this website.

    Cawl spoon in sycamore with a chip carved handle

    Cawl spoon with folk art decorated handle

    Length: 25cm (10 inches)
    Bowl width: 7.3cm
    Bowl length: 5.8cm
    Bowl depth: 1.5cm
    Finish: red ochre and hemp seed oil

    This radial sycamore cawl spoon has a deep oval bowl like proper old fashioned slupring cawl spoons. Designed for drining broth or thin soups and stews it could also be used as a ladle or serving spoon.

    The handle decoration is a mixture of chip carving and other marks made with a small pick knife. Ochre pigment is applied in a water wash and penetrates deepest on all the cut surfaces making them darker and more intensly coloured. The design is spontaneous and emergent in the the carving process, there will never be another one just like this. I like to think this style of decoration sits within the folk art tradition of adding beauty to simple household utensils.

    Blackthorn eating spoon #16

    Length: 18cm (7 inches)
    Bowl width: 4.3cm
    Bowl length: 5.5cm
    Finish: hemp seed oil

    This blackthorn spoon has an asymmertic bowl making suitable for right handers only. I’ts a tough little spoon being made entirely from heartwood and there’s some lovely dark red tones in handle as well as the bowl. Note that over time the red will most likely fade to a dark brown but it’ll still be gorgeous. It’s a bit cheaper than most of my other blackthorn spoons as it was squeezed out of a shallower piece of wood and has a little less crank than usual.

    Lavaspoon eater from cherry wood

    Cherry wood lavaspoon #1

    Length: 18cm (7 inches)
    Bowl width: 4.8cm
    Bowl length: 6.5cm
    Finish: hemp seed oil

    This is a one off spoon at present, a cherry wood eating spoon with a lavaspoon style milk paint handle. I usually use sycamore for this as the contrast between the painted handle and pale bowl is more striking. However I rather like how this turned out, the red is a bit moe subtle as the wood is darker and it’s been well received, so who knows it may be the first of the line cherry lava’s. But for now it’s one and only.
