Long Handled Cherry Spoon by Takahashi McGil
Long Handled Cherry Spoon // by Takahashi McGil
Handmade in Devon
Approx measurements: 26cm length
A beautifully crafted and visually striking hand chiselled spoon, lightweight and perfectly balanced in weight and proportion. The satisfying textures creates a connection back to the crafting, feeling the contours of the chisel on the bowl and along the long slender shape of the handle. The bowl of the spoon is reminiscent of an acorn cupule and indeed the phase “An acorn may be small but holds a world inside”. Carrying around 3g of tea leaves, these could also be used as a chashuku for measuring fine Matcha powder. A small but perfectly formed piece that encourages slow and considered use and movement.
The Cherry Spoon has a straighter handle than the Hazel, with a subtle meandering curve, sitting comfortably in the hand. The natural woodgrain giving warming tan orange tones.
