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."

Made a set of teaspoons for Brooklyn Creates, an event hosted by Brooklyn Metal Works and Brooklyn Glass.  I made four of them, and they are hand-forged sterling silver, about 5" long.

Rings from recycled gold and silver

I start with the scrap pieces (above).

 Melt them in a crucible.

 Once it melts, it makes a metal plug.

 I hammer the plug out flat.

 Flat plug.

 Cut out the center of ring.

 Refine the shape with a file.

 And here are the finished rings.
