Hedgerow Spoon ~ Hawthorn
Hedgerow Eating Spoon
Hand carved with Axe & Knife
From Cherry Hawthorn
Carved in South Devon, UK
Roasted & Finished with Linseed Oil
A hand carved eating spoon taken from an offcut of Hawthorn. We spent a days hedge laying with the Cornish carvers in Withiel, laying a mix of hawthorn, spindle and hazel, the waste wood we collected and carved into spoons
A truly sustainable spoon from the offcuts of a biodiversity enhancing, heritage craft of hedge laying. The spoon has been roasted and finished with organic linseed oil
This spoon is designed to be cooked with and well used - don't be afraid to use it on a daily basis! The only thing to avoid is putting it in the dishwasher, or leaving it to soak in the washing up bowl.
I always make sure my spoons are bone dry before putting them away in the drawer.
To give the spoon a new lease of life from time to time you can add a coat of Tung oil, flax oil, walnut oil (careful of nut allergies) or linseed oil, but this is not essential.
