Silver spoon now available on Etsy!
It is solid sterling silver and hand-forged. Forging (hammering) from thick silver stock is one of the most traditional methods used to make flatware. It can be a laborious process, but is one that results in a unique, beautiful, and functional spoon.
More spoons will be added in the coming weeks, so check back often!

"You might think of yourself as knowing history because you know some names and dates. But the feel for history is all brims and tail fins and flying buttresses, in all their typical variety. It is style that sorts the countless times around us into some kind of receding sequence, and simultaneously makes us aware of how they loop back through the present. It is style that lets us live in our own moment, or in some accidental or some curated past, or in all of them at once. Forget about clocks and calendars. Style is one of the basic ways that we tell time and it is just about the only way we tell history, or at least the only way that we perceive history around us. Without style, history is just a story."

More images of my charms for "Charmed III; third time's the charm". The silver one is being donated to a series of charm bracelets that will be auctioned as a fundraiser for the Pittsburgh Society for Contemporary Craft.
I'm pretty pleased with them--I think they're, ahem, quite charming.
This spring I was invited to participate in Pittsburgh's Society for Contemporary Craft's "Charmed III: third time's the charm" exhibition. I made the enameled charms you see above. Each one is approximately 3/4" high. The charms will be available for sale in the store and on their website beginning February 3rd.
