When I started this piece of carving I was aiming for a serving spoon!
The wood had different goals and developed many cracks as I worked.The handle went first ; from around 8" to less than an inch overnight and then the bowl itself cracked between heart and sap.
It had become a challenge by then so I carried on and this came out of the piece I had left.I am not going to sand it as it is still cracked and will never hold water.
I did particularly like the "wing" , which just appeared as I removed wood , so was determined to keep it.
This was carved with a Mora 120 and a Mora crookknife only.
The little spoon is about teaspoon size for scale.
My next project will be done with my new spoon blades from Nic which are awaiting handles.
Cheers , Simon
