Diamond Spoon in Blue Pine - 15"

Diamond Spoon in Blue Pine - 15"

96.00

This gem of a spoon can be used in the kitchen or for decor. Hand-carved from blue pine wood and sourced from my local, sustainable sawmill.

This wood is called a blue stain pine, and the science behind it is fascinating. The Mountain Pine Beetle and a blue stain fungus have a symbiosis relationship in which they work together to destroy lodgepole pine and ponderosa pine. Due to shorter and warmer winters more, Pine Beetles can survive. Trees that contain the blue stain are cut down to save other trees around them. As a woodcarver and an artist who wants to create sustainable work, I can salvage this wood and create my artful wood carvings.
