Mahogany cutlery has been designed to highlight the functional area of a utilitarian object by making a feature of the manufacturing processes that go into creating cutlery.
The fruit of the mahogany tree is the inspiration for mahogany cutlery. The shape of the fruit was imagined to be pressed into metal to create a spoon bowl. The strong mahogany trunks, inspired the slender to thick tapered handles. William’s knowledge as a Silversmith led him to leave the pressed shape of the fruit in the metal spoon bowls and fork heads, leaving a witness mark on each handle. Therefore a lovely relationship between the maker, the metal and nature.
