The Wooden Spoon Man

A frequent visitor and stall holder is The Wooden Spoon Man. Martin, who lives a simple life further into the hills region, forages for suitable timber scraps in wood piles, at mill sites and will even make a spoon from timber supplied by a customer.

He loves to work with a simple piece of scrap or fallen timber and see what it will reveal.
The connection with country makes each item a spiritual journey.
Like our lives, the variety and individuality is always a wonder.

Although Martin has only been making and selling spoons at the St Andrews Community Market consistently for the last three years, he began selling his hand made spoons and pots casually as long as 17 years ago.
