KETHER by Alexandre Gaudry Lipensky
Québec-based Alexandre Gaudry Lipensky is a global master wood carver, sculptor, designer + furniture maker.
He began woodworking and carving in 2001. Alex is self-taught. He studied and learned classical architecture and furniture-making on his own. He acquired additional experience early on in his career by working for several companies until 2005, when he decided to work on his own as an independent artist. He also gained broader experience by spending time working in France and in British-Columbia from 2008-2009.
Today Alex’s work encompasses a wide range from working and restoring architectural details for historical buildings, museums, private estates, creating custom 20th century style and Louis XVI furniture and carvings, as well as crafting commercial signs. Some of his work can also be found inside the Parliament of Canada, at the US Embassy in Finland and in many private residences across the world.
Due to the nature of the wood, each spoon will vary slightly in grain and colour. Each piece is handcrafted - therefore each design is similar, but no two pieces are alike. There will be slight variations from the photo to the actual delivered product. Each piece is unique with subtle differences in thickness, colour, shape, design and size. Variations, rather than being ‘imperfect’ or ‘flawed’, provide unique qualities inherent in handcrafted wood and should not be seen as a fault or defect.
Approximate Dimensions: 10.5" long with a 2 3/4" wide x 1" deep bowl
Material: All-natural cherry wood. Oiled with Kunos – a biodegradable linseed and natural resin oil.
Care: Wipe with a clean, damp cloth using mild soap. Do not use in the dishwasher.
Do not allow a wooden spoon to sit with food or liquid particles after using it. Do not let sit in the sink for hours either You should promptly clean any wood spoon as you are done with it.
Dry with a linen towel, and then hang them on a utensil hook so that they can finish drying before storing. Putting them away wet could lead to the development of bacteria.
It is recommened to oil your wooden utensils at least once a year. Oiling is simple and keeps them in like-new condition. It not only makes them look better, but it also prevents the wood from drying out over time, which can eventually lead to splintering.
Simply select a food-grade mineral oil and rub it onto the spoons. After applying the oil, there is no need to rinse. Instead, just hang the spoons up to dry and use once the oil is completely dry.
