A couple of buddies wanted to see my Eskimo Replica Spoons…I finally found them hidden in the shop…
Carved straight from ‘the book’ I attempted to replicate the original art work as closely as possible…hence the funny image on the first spoon…don’t know what it is? :-)
The first one is from cherry, other is from sassafras…I had no information on what types of wood the Eskimos had access to…images are wood burned then colored with black ink dye. Entire spoons were also dyed with brown ink to create old look…finish is simply wax.
I sell Native American related arts, but these spoons created no interest whatsoever on the vending table…so that’s why they were hidden in the shop. Sad. I feel like making more now, and I can promise they will be displayed proudly on the table this season!
