Another beautiful spoon! I live the back stories behind all Spoontaneous's work.

As usual, the real thing is even more beautiful than the photo. Sculptural. Lovely color. (And prompt, excellent packaging). So glad to add another Spoontaneous to the collection. Thank you!

I can't say how much I appreciate finding an artist, who blends their talent with function. My wife and I love and support the arts...almost every form. However, every once in a while, it is nice to be able to own a piece of art, that can be used in our everyday lives. This sleek and beautiful Gidgee wood spoon will do just that. It will be a part of my daily eating ritual, of sprinkling dried Carolina Reaper and Moruga Scorpion hot peppers onto my food. This spoon will add some joy to my everyday life and a little spice to boot. Additionally, not only did Terry create this fantastic piece, but he securely packaged and made sure it was quickly shipped. Thanks again Terry.

Everyone thinks I am crazy, but...this is exquisite, offbeat, and perfectly rendered. It makes me very happy.

Wow, what beautiful carving. The interior of the spoon's bowl is as silky-smooth as the outside--the mark of a careful artist.

This is an extremely cool looking "Profile" spoon made from Camphor Laurel wood. This fragrant wood has a lovely grain and the design is quite appealing.
Too many designs ....and not enough time.
Although I can not draw worth a hoot, I still have always enjoyed 'doodling' with pen and paper. I have several sketchbooks filled with all sorts of designs... for wood and other materials.
Over the years I have done woodworking in spurts but the flood of ideas seemed to create a sort of bottleneck ....which seemed to prevent me from completing projects.
In the past I have made boxes, canes, carvings, marquetry, wood turnings and a pipe. But these would come in short bursts of activity and then years would pass before another few pieces were made.
In 2009 I began focusing on wooden spoons... having been inspired by the work of Norm Sartorius and others. A wooden spoon is fairly small but is unlimited in its design possibilities.
Somehow, focusing on mostly spoons seemed to unclog the bottleneck and I have completed more projects in the last three years than all the years that came before.
I have nurtured my creativity and while others mostly think it is innate, I believe that anyone can immensely increase their creativity simply enough.
It gives me a great lift when someone appreciates my work. Even if it doesn't lead to a purchase, there is still that knowing that we connected at some level.
One day I hope to be able to sit and watch some other carvers work and learn some of their 'secrets' for technique and speed. Carving is a slow process for me.... but an enjoyable process. I never know what the end result is going to be... and I enjoy watching it unfold... sometimes taking a 90 degree turn midstream..
Hope you enjoy having a look at my pieces and please visit my webpage at www.spoontaneous.com Thanks!
I grew up in an orphanage from age 6 through finishing high school. During high school I was able to take one art class.... but showed absolutely no promise at all. Studied Landscape Design in college and learned a few basic design principles.
