Spoons & Sculptures

I found this old tool in a junky old antique tat shop. I think it's a grubbing hoe of some type.

I thought it looked quite sculptural . . .

. . . specially from this close up angle

Had loads of cherry lately so I've been carving some spoons and utensils -

I've also reshaped a couple of sycamore spoons that I felt were a bit lumpen. It's surprising how a bit of wood removed and a few strokes of the knife can make things gracefull. The heart came from the top of the spoon 3rd from right.
The implement at left is a Kniforkspoon - there is a blade on the right hand prong.
