Lue Brass Large Spoon #10, handcrafted by Japanese metalworker Ruka Kikuchi (nickname Lue).
He makes these by hammering a form for the mouth of the spoon and cuts a long strip for the handle, attaching them together by welding. This is perfect for serving food or vegetables, thanks to its bigger size.
As time progresses you'll find that this spoon will patina and darken as the metal oxidises, also reacting to the natural oils on ones hands. Each is unique, featuring little scratches up-close where the craftsman has been at work.
Take note of the fine imperfections, a signature from Lue himself.
Handmade in Setouchi city, Okayama.
