I have worked with wood for over forty years, and I currently make hand-carved fruit wood spoons (examples of which are featured on this blog).
My work is currently featured at WYSIWYG located in Staunton,Virginia;and at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello in Charlottesville,Virginia. My work has previously appeared in Gallery 234 Staunton, Virginia, Spruce Creek Gallery in Nellysford, Virginia and the Virginia Fall Foliage Festival and the Artisans Center of Virginia in Waynesboro, Virginia as well as in the Englers Block in Branson, Missouri and Silver Dollar City in the Branson, Missouri area.
The Spring blossoms are a treat and the Fall fruit delicious. You will notice the wood is rich in color, dense and carves like no other. My favorite wood ! The letter opener at the bottom of the picture is made of wild plum.
