This spoon is handmade from cherry wood harvested from a fallen tree in North Wales. It has been carved using only an axe and a couple of knives.
This spoon is a typical style of Swedish eating spoon - characterized by the short handle length compared to the bowl. It also has a very traditional decoration on the handle and bowl called kolrosing, where small incisions are cut in the wood with a knife, finely ground pigment (in this case coffee) is pressed in the incision, and the wood fibres are pressed back together again to seal everything in. The kolrosed design on these spoons is a calavera - a representation of a skull typically seen in celebrations of Dia de los Muertos. This spoon is approximately 12 cm long and the bowl is 3.9 cm wide.
