This was a spoon that begins my further journeys into learning about chip carving and eventually the Scandinavian art form of kolrosing.
Kolrosing is a very old method of giving fine line surface decoration to wood. It started centuries ago with simply using the tip of ones’ belt knife to make fine decorative cuts – and then rubbing coal dust into it to bring out the pattern.
This and additional information on Kolrosing is found on Del Stubbs website at: http://pinewoodforge.com/kolrosing.html
This is a chip carving with good ole tasters choice coffee powder rubbed in, this would usually be done in Kolrosing where there are only score lines without any wood relieved….but what the heck, I wanted to try it and so I did!
The wood used here is this wonderful smelling Sassafras.
All hand made and sure feeling the blisters…lol.
Hope this inspires some future spoon carvers out there.
Thank you and please remember….......
