Whittling Art in Spoons

Posted on

UK based artist Giles Newman creates the most wonderfully detailed wooden spoons with centuries old techniques.

Using primarily oak for his starting base, Mr. Newman uses an axe and knife to whittle such beauty and detail into every piece he designs. He gets his wood from sustainable tree branches and coats each finished piece with tung oil; a natural nut based and food safe oil. Meaning these works of art are functional as well as beautiful. Not sure I could bring myself to do it, but they’d certainly make a nice decorative piece in any home or kitchen. You can find them here at his etsy store should you wish to see more. 🙂
