About this set:
A wooden scoop and a ‘helping’ stick plus a scale utensil all made of hawthorn wood. A natural odourless oil was applied and the wood is protected against water/humidity so it may be washed, rinsed by water.
The scoop and two other utensils are bright, light wood colour. The scoop shape one end resembles to droplets of tea, the same style is found on the stick and weight vessel.
The half of the stick curves like subtle waves or edges of spilled water, a very fine work.
The scale vessel is like a heap of paint on an artist pallete. All three utensils creates a happy trio.
Pieces like this are born under hands of a craftsman, they are coming alive while carved and they are never imitated. No copies as Milan said. Lately asked for a similar vessel to be carved failed with a piece that he could not finish. I asked him last time I met him, ‘why don’t you use a logo, a mark to identify you pieces?’. He said ‘ these pieces are me and they are not the logo, I am not the brand. Then I realized how true this is. The art piece itself is the brand.
These wooden pieces went through a long ‘process of creation’. Milan, the woodcarver, finds pieces in a forest, pieces that are ‘dead wood’. Takes them home and then have these pieces await their ‘fate’. Wooden pieces are carved only when time allows Milan to work on them. Slowly wooden pieces are formed into usable tools. Carving and polishing takes ages (days) to have a final scoop ready to use. Each piece has natural oil applied that was tried for years and does not get stale.
