I finally cast the bronze spoon I promised in June. The surface texture is from the Cellardyke beach sand (where I made the sand box), but the piece was cast in Lumsden at the Scottish Sculpture Workshop. It is silicon bronze, so is food safe and I filed down the rough bits so I think is functional as well as unique.
The wee shell is lead-free pewter. I hope the new owner is pleased after their long wait.
It was one of five sand boxes that I made and poured, so there will be more results to show as I work on them.
