This tea scoop is made out of wooden ‘love’. I spend a nice afternoon with Milan, a man who likes to work with wood. He was telling me a story that he was suppose to make scoops for a Slovak traditional crafts contest and once he thought about the main price he lost all his ideas and stoped his work before even started. I asked him while negotiating prices for these pieces and I told him “I do not want to offer you a price that will not make you happy and you won’t make any more tea scoops”. He replied “I will make more because I like making them “. I think there is a lot hidden in his words. His full time job for two decades is creating dental (tooth) stuff while wood gives him relaxing moments, and in these moments amazing ideas would arise.
A acacia scoop made of acacia tree root wood. A natural odourless oil applied. Very light, some 20 grams only, very fine smoothly polished surface. Milan told me “If I were you I would not sell this scoop. I wanted to keep for myself but I thought it would be nice to give it away” So profound these words are. Let not the beauty absorb us.
