Fruit spoon

Ornament is loosely based on Mary’s Ribbon Festoon lesson.  First time I’ve designed a carving from a sketch and then carved it in relief.  Wood is alder grown near our farm, which took the detail surprisingly well with sharp tools.

Alder is a colonizing native tree in Western Washington State and grows very rapidly.  - Bill

Hi Bill,

Nice way to combine spoon carving with decorative design. I like it! And that's some micro carving for grapes 🙂
