Latest Commission Piece

I've been really lucky recently to have gotten several commission orders. I've done nalbound hats and mittens, painted shields, and some sewing. The most recent commission was a love spoon.

The person placing the order wanted flowers and hearts, but otherwise left the design up to me. Here is the finished product. I'm quite happy with how it looks, and I hope the person purchasing it is, too. It is carved from 1/2 inc basswood and is about 11 inches long by 2.5 inches at it widest point. The flowers and the claddagh are in low relief. The finish is a gel stain to create the antique look covered with a low gloss butcher block oil and finish.
