12 Gauge Steel Rice Paddle

One morning a sudden moment of inspiration led to the design of these beautiful kitchen tools. In the artist's own words, "The fabrication was...more akin to a biological event than a conscious making of art." And the 12 Guage Steel Rice Paddles were born. Both the small and large variations are cold forged from 12 gauge stainless steel in Stephen Fitz-Gerald's Northern California one-man shop. 

The large paddle measurs 10.5" long with a 3.25" wide symetrical head, while the small measures 9.5" long with a 2.5" wide asymetrical head.
