daughter’s fantastic woodwork, see through spoon

I am very proud of my daughter Jojo who has been doing some really great spoons recently. Jojo learnt to use a knife at a very young age, this is Swedish master carver Wille Sundqvist teaching her and Ollie some carving techniques when they were 6 and 9 years old.

Fast forward 10 years and here she is in typical teenager fashion multi-tasking watching Glee on the computer whilst carving spoons.

She has done some impressive spoons this week, most are yet to be photographed but she did this lovely snap this morning, somehow it feels like a monumental sculpture. It was carved evenly thin and soaked in linseed for over a week so went translucent. She plans to do more photos and start a blog of her own work but for now she is just obsessively carving and developing her own spoons.

    Multitasking! And surrounded by wood shavings..Not your typical teenager though. Very nice work, it's not easy getting it that thin.

    Fantastic work! It must be sheer joy to you to see your daughter carve spoons and share your same creative passion.

    Getting her own technique and style down through practice. I love this idea.
