Alan Spoonmaker.

Alan came to visit a couple of years ago.
Over two days we sat in the garden under the Westcountry sun, as I took him through the folk art of Kuksa carving.
We worked with Axe, Knife and Hook.
Alan went home inspired and has worked very hard to gain and improve his skill set over the past two years.
I am impressed.
He is now an accomplished carver who has taught spoon carving at the local boarding school.















Some super, imaginative shapes.
I enjoy the curving flow of his spoons in profile.


 More of Alan's splendid work can be found on Face Book...



Alan can also be contacted through his email at...

Enjoy.
