One-of-a-kind Virginia Osage Orange Spoons

One-of-a-kind Virginia Osage Orange Spoons

from 62.00

These spoons are part of an ongoing series of one-of-a-kind pieces made from osage orange. Osage can be a difficult wood to find in large sizes, but it makes excellent kitchen tools and is exceptionally beautiful. I cut this myself from a log which was given to me by my uncle. He saved pieces from a wind-fallen osage tree which would have been burned.

Because of the inconsistency in sizing and grain in the wood, each of these spoons is unique in size and design. They all have been ebonized except for inside the bowl. This process involves using a safe dye made from iron and vinegar to react with the tannins naturally in the wood, leaving a darkened, smoky finish that really contrasts with the color of the osage when oiled. The ebonized finish can be expected to fade over time with exposure to light and moisture, but will develop into an aged patina unique to your spoon.
