This Cherry Blossom Lovespoon was carved from a single piece, as per tradition, The timber used was english cherry and it was finished with danish oil and wax.The spoon is about 380 mm long, 125 mm wide and 22 mm deep. It is panel like in form but heavily pierced and multi-layered. There is a swivel at the top of the panel which encloses a heart-shaped area with under-cut initials of the couple (my daughter, jessica and husband, Brad) on the front and an inlaid contrasting timber heart on the back awaiting a suitable inscription.The sides of the panel continue down enclosing some celtic knot-work and join with the cherry blossom branches that form a wide flat cage with a carved loose heart inside.
