Astrid de Groot Spoon carving, bowl/ plate turning.
All of my spoons are hand-carved using traditional tools and techniques. They are made from indigenous wild hardwoods of rural Wales, while the wood is still green. Most wood is foraged by myself; broken branches on the roadsides, fallen trees in the woods, I always keep my eyes open and bring my folding saw when I walk the woodland. I design and make durable, practical spoons, striving for a high standard of excellence and beauty. They make wonderful personal gifts for home or professional kitchen, birthday's, wedding gifts.
