There is a delightful intimacy to spoons as the conjure up comfort, calm and soothing sensation.  We use spoons to lift nourishment into the mouths of small babes and the sick and the dying. They are a vehicle for the transmission of sustenance and of emotion.  Each whimsical spoon is hand made and is one-of-a-kind.  They are decorative pieces only and may be hung on a wall if desired as there is a small hole in the back for a nail.  Each will slightly vary in colour, pattern, size, and weight.
