Hand Carved Willow Porringer and Spoon
This bowl and eating spoon set is perfect for eating porridge, cereal, soups and stews.
This lovely little bowl is hand carved with an axe, adze and knives. The entire bowl has a slightly faceted finish. The handles are made to fit your thumb while you cup the bowl which makes it a joy to hold. The style of bowl is know as a porringer and is a personal favourite of mine.
The pictured bowl and spoon are made from the two halves of a willow log, collected near where I live in Westport. Yours will be similar but there will be some variation in grain and colour. They will be treated with cold-pressed linseed oil and beeswax and they can be safely hand-washed daily in hot soapy water.
