I was recently working on a few projects in my shop that had to do with building my show stock up and suppling a few local stores for their summer inventories. This picture was taken at my workbench after I had finished a few double measuring spoons. I was checking the bowl depth and angle. To calibrate these types of measuring spoons I use salt measures to the right quantity. This step takes a little practice because there is always a little more sanding to do. Taking away too much wood will result in a fine piece of kindling for the fire. You can always take wood away, but it's really hard putting it back.
Updated news from the Studio:
I'll be involved in opening a new Artisains Co-op in Freeport, Maine this May. My work will be there along with many other fine Artists and Artisains from Maine will be sold there. The Grand Opening will be announced soon.
Joy Craft and Design is nestled in a small community in Springdale, Utah. This stylish boutique features an art gallery, gift shop, and vintage store. I'm glad to announce that Joy Craft and Design will now be carrying my custom kitchen woodenware. This boutique has a great mix of items and along with many other Artist, Joy Stein, Owner, has created a wonderful place for Artist and Artisans to showcase their work.
Here is what Elan Magazine has said about Joy Craft and Design:
"...Joy Craft & Design is the creative space belonging to artist Joy Stein. Her boutique is the reflection of her vibrant personality. It is here that you will find upcycled, restyled and handcrafted items in contemporary fabrics dancing with color. A special place it is, filled with imagination."
It is truly a magical place that not only brings out your imagination, but sparks your creativity and appreciation for the artist who create wonderful works of art. I look forward to sharing my wooden kitchen utensils here!
