Hammered copper and forged steel are combined with the technique of hand riveting in this whimsical culinary sculpture piece.
Next to knives, kitchen utensils are one of my favorite projects to work on. Each one is slightly different and there is plenty of room for experimenting with variation of styles. I also enjoy working with copper as it provides a nice contrast to steel and is one of our native Vancouver Island metals.
This cooking sized spoon is made from a small piece of reclaimed copper water pipe from the reno by the beach. The square steel handle is flared into a leaf and drawn down into a thin stem with a loop for hanging. Two antique aluminum rivets join the handle and bowl. Length is about 11.5″.
Material: Reclaimed copper pipe, rolled steel stock, antique aluminum rivets
