CAN I ACTUALLY USE THESE SPOONS?
Yes! Hockleycrest spoons are designed for cooking, and will be much happier getting used on a daily basis than sitting on your counter as a decoration!
WHERE CAN I BUY ONE OF YOUR SPOONS?
Although I don't have an online store at the moment, you can get one by sending me an email, or if you're in Ontario, find me in person at a market or craft show!
WHERE DO YOU GET THE WOOD?
The wood I use is harvested from local, naturally fallen trees! Because the wood is local, these spoons are far more sustainable than store bought spoons where wood is often shipped from Europe or Asia.
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN SPOON CARVING?
I've been working with wood since I was a kid, but the spoon addiction started about four years ago when I saw a picture of a wooden spoon online and tried to recreate it!
CAN YOU MAKE A _______ FOR ME?
Unfortunately I'm not taking custom orders at the moment as I'm too busy staying stocked up for craft shows. I can however carve words or designs of your choosing into a spoon!
As a carver, spoons are the most complicated simple form around, and the repetitive nature of making them is really addicting! In the kitchen, a nice spoon creates a greater connection between the cook and their food, as well as the people they are sharing it with!
