Works | Seven Silver Spoons

The nurturing, non-aggressive spoon form has been inspirational in my work for many years. Human in character, with bowl head and handle body, made in numerous variations from many materials, the spoon resonates across cultures with playful idioms in many languages. 

Utilising glass qualities and making skills is key to the ideas behind this work displayed or concealed in stacking crates. The deliberate weight and size of each piece demands handling with skill and care.

In Wales the traditional love-spoon with symbolic carving tells the recipient that the carver wishes to provide her with everything she needs. These are my love-spoons for our planet.
