This piece is hand raised from sterling silver sheet. To strengthen the neck, extra silver has been soldered to the front and back. This is a traditional technique used to strengthen spoons in the past. The piece is then attached to a locally sourced handle made from English Holly. Each piece from The Silver Duck is handmade start to finish by Charlotte Anne Duckworth. Finding and foraging for wood, stripping and seasoning; designing and making the silver; joining the materials together. Sanding and waxing the wood. Charlotte crafts these beautiful, functional products in her workshop in Bristol.
The utensils are made from sterling silver for its robust qualities. Paired with English Holly, a hard, durable wood. Coupling beautifully with the silver because of its creamy aesthetic. Each piece of wood is locally sourced, and hand-picked for the desired function. The silver is hallmarked in accordance with UK regulations and standards. Each piece holds its own identity and personality, brought to life by the owner.
Charllotte ethos revolves around simple, elegant designs that are ergonomic and tactile. With the intention of provoking people to appreciate their food and take time over their daily routines and rituals in the kitchen. Preserving and capturing the natural qualities of the materials used. Charlotte creates magical utensils with a rugged, native feel to them. Her pieces are designed to function, with appreciation towards the natural beauty and proportion between the materials.
