Hand carved sycamore spreader
- In stock, ready to ship
- Inventory on the way
This spreader has been hand carved from sycamore that came from a farmer in Tenterden, Kent who sustainably manages the woodland that’s been in his family for generations.
It’s blade is the perfect size to load with butter, jams, honeys (of course!) and anything else you want spreading, and perfect for children as it's not sharp.
A limited edition of just 10 have been made exclusively for Hive & Keeper
Every piece has been hand carved with how Amy carves it out of the wood adjusted every time as she works with the wood's natural character and strength. Sycamore has a sort of twinkle to it, pale and with a luminosity that catches the light.
The finishing touch is the yellow painted band, showing off the wood perfectly and making them a very special limited edition.
19 cms long
These have been carved from British sycamore by Amy, a green woodworker, who is based in Sussex and has hand carved them for us in her workshop.
Green woodworking is using wood which still has moisture in with hand tools. It’s much easier on the hands than seasoned wood and means Amy can source wood directly from tree surgeons, woodland management etc and process it herself rather than have to buy pre-cut and dried selections from a sawmill.
These have been carved from sycamore, collected from a farmer's sustainably managed woodland near Tenterden in Kent.
These are wooden products and so can go back to the Earth once their useful life is over, leaving no footprint or sign they were ever here. From tree to dust..
Amy recommends hand washing and storing in a ventilated place. They can be occasionally reoiled if wished with flaxseed, hemp, walnut or grapeseed oil (over the whole thing).
