Silver skull spoons

It’s a portmanteau playground! “Skoons” is better than “spulls,” I think. They’re made from vintage silver by Tom Sale, aka Pinky Diablo, and are available in both tea- and table-skoon sizes. Of course, the numerous holes limit their utility as spoons; I wonder if the details could be embossed instead of pierced? Also, if the teeth were made a bit sharper they could double as tines, and the whole utensil would become a “skull spork.” I’ll leave that one to your own imaginations to skoonerize…er, I mean, spoonerize.

  1. Tom was one of my art instructors in college, and a big reason why I got into art/design/making in the first place. It’s good to see his work get some attention.
    He’s also doing some work painting/drawing skeletons & pig’s feet.. I’m a big fan of his stuff.
