A beautiful linden wood spoon, carved with a knife and sandblasted by hand, in a simple shape and pleasant to the touch like the spoons of our childhood.
Basswood is a stable, light and strong wood. Of all the North American woods, lime is the softest and lightest; it is also the one with the least variation in the color of the heart and sapwood.
Each spoon is unique. The images give a good idea of the one you’ll receive. The making of these basswood spoons makes them all unique. This is why colours, dimensions and wood motives can vary from one to another. See it as the pledge of a work done by hand.

Montrealer, Jean-Philippe Dupuis is above all a poet. He has published with Editions Triptyque and Lézard amoureux. He has also made a few films including a documentary on the poet Saint-Denys Garneau.
He started carving wooden spoons in the fall of 2017 with the idea of making a replica of the spoon his parents used when he was a child. Item he still owns. He only works with lime, which he carves with a knife and sands manually. The objects he carves are simple shapes that are pleasant to touch.
