Lujan lives in Trelew, Chubut, Patagonian Argentina.
|This is another small scoop carved in CEREJEIRA, which is an indigenous wood of Brazil. Lujan calls this her "little eggy spoon" and it was made from the front panel of an old draw. Cerejeira is similar to oak and has a rich tannin aroma.|
|This beautiful serving spoon is also made from Radal, and was originally longer in the handle, but it broke when Lujan tried to put hole through it, which must have been serendipity as it looks perfect as it is.|
|This spoon is carved in Lenga and is one of Lujan's favourites. It has a knot in the handle and was finally polished with a walnut, which I presume deepens the colour and oils at the same time.|
|This lovely scoop, which was Lujan's first spoon, is made from Algarrobo wood and was an offcut from some bunk beds which were then converted into single beds for her children. I think this kind of back story really adds value to a spoon.|
|This cooking spoon is carved in Paraiso and has a simple but aesthetically appealing form. Lujan said that it took a lot of patience to ensure the regularity of the long handle.|
|Thanks Lujan for sharing your spoons with us - they are beautiful!|
Now, if you are reading this post and you yourself carve spoons, then take the plunge - send me an email with a couple of photos of perhaps your favourite spoon, or your most recent or unusual spoon and tell me a little about yourself.
