Spoon, tulipwood (2014)
In 2013 I was invited again to the Echo Lake collaboration in Pennsylvania. Norm Sartorius was present, so I asked him if he would show me how to make spoons. He very graciously shared his techniques and knowledge, and I made two spoons, the second of which was decorated by Neil Turner from Australia. Here is an image of my very first spoon:
A year later in 2014 I had acquired the necessary equipment and made the Tulipwood spoon and the Bird Spoon #1 below. I shall be making more spoons.
