LadderBack Spoon

Could this piece, climbing the rungs of your imagination, be the spoon of your dreams? There may be nothing closer to it than the LadderBack Spoon, hand carved by Terry Widner of Spoontaneous. This elaborate, beautiful piece of culinary art is formed from a single piece of Sapele wood. It can stand on its own on the spiral-shaped 'wheels,' as well as hang on the wall as a display piece. Whether displaying its own sculptural beauty, dry goods, or something else, is to be decided by the creative mind of its owner.

The Story

Playful, inspiring, extraordinarily creative, always organic. These are the words that come to mind when considering Terry Widner's approach to wood carving. Creating spoons, scoops, vessels and decorative pieces at this studio in the US state of Florida, Terry allows the creative process to play out as it will, embracing the 'not-knowing' aspect of where exactly a given object's final form will land.
