London-based woodworker Samuel Alexander began making spoons and vessels as a cathartic form of therapy. Inspired by organic shapes, his pieces are made from different kinds of wood, depending on what has been felled as part of local tree management. Inspired by growth and harvest, he makes this small Stork vessel using traditional hand tools including an axe and adze.

Each piece he creates is completely individual in colour and form, due to natural variations such as the grain or type of wood, and the use of hand tools. Due to the delicate nature of the wood, it is not suitable for hot liquids and must be dried upside down after washing.

This item is part of our New Makers programme. In its fourth year running, five makers demonstrating excellence in skill, originality and craftsmanship have been chosen by a TOAST panel. We will offer business and marketing advice, as well as a platform to sell their pieces until the end of this year, with full profits being returned to them.

I make my pieces as calming as possible to look at, as the process is me searching for a sense of calm.”
