Pair of Korean ginkgo-leaf-shaped serving spoon by Sung Woo Choi


Love at first sight for this pair of spoons by Sung Woo Choi, a remarkable Korean craftsman who started out as an engineer in the car industry, before discovering the beauty of wood and launching a career as a sculptor-artisan of wooden objects.

These large ginkgo-leaves-shaped serving spoons come as a pair of 2, made from birch wood that Sung Woo finds in particular while walking in the mountains around his home, have been worked using a very time-consuming method that consists of first designing the piece using a very rational approach to volumes and shapes, using 3D drawings, a legacy from Sung Woo's early life.

He then carves each piece patiently and intensely from a piece of wood, taking it through various stages to make it suitable for food use (water, fire and natural walnut oil).

The result is stunningly beautiful, like a perfect little work of art. A light, soft, playful, useful (as serving spoons for instance) and/or decorative object. Entirely made by hand each piece in the series is slightly different.
