Willow Fäbod Spoon
Spoon carved from a lump of willow that had been sat in a ditch for nine months.
Willow is usually not my favourite wood, yellowy pinkish, soft and stringy, but something magical happens to it if you give it some time to ripen on the log. It somehow hardens and develops these layered hues of deep brown and purple.
This spoon was based on a spoon a friend of mine found at a old farmstead or fäbod in Swedish. See last picture for said spoon.
– Has a small pithy defect on the back mind you.
