A beautiful collection of hand crafted spoons created with branches keeping the original shapes and characteristics of each wood. Using only locally grown and harvested wood in Japan, the Nagano based artist and furniture designer Ibuki Kaiyama of Atelier hi creates unique and precious pieces of artisan spoons making even the distorted shapes and knots of the branches part of the art as well as making each spoon a completely unique piece.

These large size spoons are great for soup spoons, these spoons with short handles are common in Japan and other parts of Asia. They can be used as coffee spoons and scoops. 

A is made with Hinoki Japanese Cypress, you can enjoy beautiful grains on both sides and amazing colour around the knot (no it has not been joined but it is the natural way of how the branch grows).

B is made with Shirakashi Bamboo Leaved Oak and has a lovely curve and pale colour of the natural oak wood.

All of these spoons are made using natural wood and created with the Greenwood technique, finished with oil. Each spoon will be packaged with a fine cotton cloth perfect for gifting.
