Recently I wrote about inspiration in the form of a slew of new books. There was more inspiration stemming from the Season of the Fest – Greenwood Fest, Spoonfest, Täljfest and beyond. Here’s a few items I gathered; some gifts, most purchased, from some of the people I worked alongside.
Many of the spoons came from Spoonfest. First (for no reason other than I photographed it first) is a large serving spoon by Jan Harm ter Brugge. http://www.houtvanbomen.com/HoutvanBomen/houtvanbomen-_English_summary.html
A nice beech plate from Owen Thomas, nice person, nice plate. https://www.instagram.com/owenthomaswoodcraft/
Eating spoons – one from Simon Hill. Part of the “internet came alive” phenomenon for me, was seeing Simon’s work. https://simonhillgreenwoodwork.wordpress.com/gallery/
Another eater. Magnus Sundelin made it. Forgot he sold it to me, & panicked, thinking it was lost when he went to show it to his students! https://www.instagram.com/sloydmagnus/
Another British wonder – Adam Hawker. https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100005448825480 great stuff.

A wooden spoon finished with urushi lacquer by Madoka, Masashi Kutsuwa’s wife. Wow. Here’s Masashi’s page, I can’t find anything by Madoka… https://www.instagram.com/masashi_kutsuwa/ and https://www.facebook.com/masashi.kutsuwa
Dave Fisher’s duck bowl. You’ve seen his work by now, right? https://davidffisherblog.wordpress.com/
Jarrod Stone Dahl’s birch work. My 2nd one of his, this one is a birch sleeve, slipped off the log intact. That forms the inside, then it’s wrapped with a sheet of bark that is joined together with the decorative interlocking tabs. https://www.instagram.com/jarrodstonedahl/
A small eating spoon by Derek Sanderson – in cherry. Derek can stop himself.. https://www.instagram.com/dcsandersoninc/
While looking a few things up for this post, I found this video from Taljfest, by Niklas Karlsson – here’s his Instagram page https://www.instagram.com/_ahardslojdlife/
Thanks for posting it Niklas, I got to see stuff I missed!
