spoon sale / une vente de cuillères

Firstly some eating spoons in rowan that I have recently finished. This gorgeous rowan wood came from the north of England and I got it at Spoonfest this year. Rowan, or mountain ash only grows happily in northern climates, so I don't normally have any here in Brittany. It carves beautifully, dries very hard, and has the most wonderful grain contrast between the sapwood and the heartwood! All spoons are finished with a coat of walnut oil. Je les vernis d’une couche d’huile de noix.
