I've finished 'Eager to Learn' and made the frame. I will soon begin the blog on my first welsh love-spoon commission starting with the preliminary sketch and alterations leading up to a final design.

Here is a full view of 'Eager to Learn' showing the frame made from Eucalyptus viminalis, textured with gouge cuts, stained with potassium permanganate, the high edges of the gouge marks rubbed back a little with rotten stone on an alcohol dampened rag and finished with wax.
