Out of Chaos Woods comes curiosities!
Original wooden art creations by Austin, Texas artists Terry Snow & Sarah Snow.
Terry Snow carves wood by-hand to make many unique artistic and functional shapes, including spoons.
Some of the spoons are inspired by the tradition of Welsh and Scandinavian Lovespoon making, in which a suitor carves an intricate spoon to demonstrate his love and ability to provide with his woodworking skills.
On this spoon the cycles of life are represented by the death's-head hawkmoth’s three stages of life entwined in a rose vine. The death's-head hawkmoth's caterpillar is pyrographic drawn climbing up the side of the spoon, presumable circumventing the obstacles of the rose vine.
In the below art piece, the heart and small spoon are carved from one piece of Mahogany wood mounted on a piece of Poplar with an antique square-cut steel nail. This piece is a celebration of love but also the risks of exposing your heart.
