"Spoon From a Forgotten Ceremony" - 24 x 4.75 x 3 Nigerian Ebony - In the 1990s I made several ceremonial spoons in this configuration with the last being in 1999. Four of them are now in public collections. Over a year ago I received a commission to return to this design using Ebony. I wanted to make a commanding piece that claimed the space it occupied and included a couple new elements without seeming to be a different piece. This one has peaks at the bowl ends and triangles in relief at the termination of each handle. The original idea was for a spoon to be shared in a ritual, passed between participants requiring a handle at each end - $3800 - SOLD.  Photography by Jim Osborn.
