Amboyna Burl Spoon (Philippines) - Fantastic strong piece with very unusual bowl shape - the light sapwood highlights the tips of each orb including the spoon bowl. I've been curious about meteor showers most of my life but have only seen one, the Perseid. Flat on my back with hundreds of others who found their way to Rock Creek Park in Washington, DC years ago I saw streak after streak of light mark the night sky. The best of those was punctuated by the ooooos and aaahhhhhhhs often associated with fireworks. This spoon is a tribute to that memory.
