Tabletop: Wooden Spoons by Nic Webb

March 16, 2010 6:00 PM

BY Sarah Lonsdale

British craftsman Nic Webb sees the spoon "as a humble object that serves us every day." He has, however, managed to turn the humble object into a work of art. Salvaging wood from trimmed trees in London parks, Webb uses traditional tools and methods to carve his elegant spoons. His organic approach means that he looks to the character and grade of the wood to dictate the design, so every piece is a unique work. Prices start at £80 (no small amount); however, think of each spoon as a piece of art that can be used for a lifetime. Go to Nic Webb for more information.
