More Leafspoons

Seems like Leafspoons are also popular gifts. I think it is because they are quirky, light and easy to send in the mail - both nationally and internationally.

Anyway Maleny Additions needed a restock of the Leasfspoons so another recycled silver-plated copper drink tray was converted into 7  Leafspoons. I'm sharing a few photos of the different stages of the process.

Looking good; and hopefully going to make a few folk smile.


  1. Gorgeous! One of the things I most appreciate about your work is how you make the most utilitarian objects, so beautiful. Sure to delight anyone who receives one.

  2. Beautiful, Barry, with such a sheen. They'd make a lovely gift. And how you make them is sheer magic!

  3. I am not surprised B, they are stunning as is all your gift range. The best repurposed gift range on the coast, for sure!

  4. Hi AA, C & K - thanks for checking out a new bunch of products. It is often a funny thing that we create something that is a one-off quirky thing but then folk want byou to continue making them. The only things that keep the soul on this is that I keep using recycled material, each piece is unique; and the individual pieces bring joy to the purchaser and the receiver. Go well and create well. B
