This design is based on Victorian Welsh dolphin eating spoons.

Made a spoon display today, I am preparing for a pitch, to start selling my work in shops around here.
I used a heavy piece of Welsh oak.
The bracket on the back is retractable and made out of Welsh cherry with a bit of bark left on.
Hand carved oak pins for the spoons to hang on to.
There is space for 4 or 5 spoons on each set of pins.

This is a cherry spoon there is one more cherry in the photo’s the others are sycamore.
These spoons are authentic to Wales each family member had it’s own personal favourite spoon they where used for eating cawl that is a chunky soup like broth. The bowls are about 79mm wide the handles 220mm long.

The spoons are about 130mm long, I just looked at a regular metal tea spoon and followed the outline shape; things change when you carve them out of wood an unspoken rule I am happy to follow, then you end up with these little cuties.
