When in the company of giants it’s important to pay proper attention to the silverware. Our latest BIG forging is a spoon measuring 28 inches in length. The bowl is 2 inches deep and measures 5 inches at its widest point – that’s capacity for a lot of sugar lumps!
Our Giant Spoon started life as a foot-long bar of 6mm solid sterling silver and was hot-forged over the course of a week to achieve the length, then filed to perfect the scalloped handle.[wonderplugin_video videotype=”mp4″ mp4=”https://brettpayne.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Giant-Spoon-EB2D6FFD-79E1-4557-854F-F2D0D3F7F27A.mp4″ videowidth=600 videoheight=400 keepaspectratio=1 videocss=”position:relative;display:block;background-color:#000;overflow:hidden;max-width:100%;margin:0 auto;” playbutton=”https://brettpayne.com/wp-content/plugins/wonderplugin-video-embed/engine/playvideo-64-64-0.png”]
There’s still quite a bit of work to do but if you’re interested in seeing the Giant Spoon as a work in progress, why not visit our stand at the West Dean Arts & Craft Festival in Sussex next weekend? If you can’t make it, not to worry! We’ll be at the Bovey Tracey Contemporary Craft Festival in Devon the following weekend, 8th-10th June.
