Recycled silver Georgian dessert spoon
This wonderful flattened solid silver spoon Raven is an inspired design, celebrating my love of Autumn, Corvids and wonderful nature.
On this occasion i have attempted to capture the love of Ravens within silver spoon! All of the spoons and silver cutlery i use to make my work are individual items which have been unloved and unappreciated! These loose items are then ‘swept’ up in house clearance deals, generally be antiques dealers. They are then destined to be ‘melted down’ for their silver content as they are generally classed as undesireable due to not being in a set of six or twelve. It is these ‘lost’ pieces of historic and beautiful silverware i choose to ‘save’ from the melting pot.
It is made with green sensibilities and ethics, appropriate for such designs! The overall aim is to transform each spoon into something lovely and desireable, with a new life ahead of it!
The Raven and Runes design has been meticulously hand cut and carved (also using traditional hand tools and methods!).
