Spon : a guide to spoon carving and the new wood culture

Barn The Spoon2017
Books, Manuscripts
The simple, ordinary spoon is part of our everyday lives, intimately entwined with the acts of eating and socialising, from stirring our first cup of coffee to scraping the last bit of pudding from the bowl. Barn The Spoon, as he's affectionately known, can be found on permanent exhibition in the shop window of his workshop on the Hackney Road, East London, where he makes his life's work, designing and carving beautiful spoons that are both a joy to use and hold. Delve into the history, culture, and folklore of spoons, into native American tribes and Celtic mythology, to the lakes of Sweden, back to the workshop in Hackney and into your own kitchen. A master craftsman, Barn will show you how to use the axe and knife, from how they should feel in your hand to honing the perfect edge when carving your own spoons.
