Small Welsh Lovespoon by Nansi Hemming
 
October 1998

Small lovespoon

      This small Welsh lovespoon (150mm.) was carved in Laburnum (Laburnum anagyroids) The bright yellow flowers of this interestingly grained wood are often seen in the hedgerows of West Wales. The trees are said to have originated as fencing stakes. The design is a development of a traditional Celtic pattern and a heart motif is carved in the bowl.

      This spoon was carved as a commission and a similar spoon could be carved for 60.
