Please note that these spoons are shipped directly from Kirk Burkett's studio in Virginia.

Perhaps the most remarkable and unusual of all Kirk's creations, the Elephant Grille will delight and amaze even the most...jaded..absintheur. Watch how the sugar slowly melts, and drips through the trunk on the following photos:

Every piece made by Kirk Burkett will have your name (or a name of your choice) engraved.

The well known Virginia-based artist Kirk Burkett brings his skills as a master craftsman in silver and his passion as an absintheur together in this extraordinary range of sterling silver absinthe spoons and grilles. These highly original and beautifully worked pieces are the first truly modern rethinking of a classic absinthe artifact in over a century, and have been greeted with acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic.

Aside from the beauty and originality of the spoons, they are supremely practical - they fit snugly on any standard sized glass. They are an absolute delight to look at, and to hold. The original range of grilles has now been augmented by several spoons, including the extraordinary Artemisia spoon with a bowl fashioned of intertwined wormwood leaves and, most recently, a perfect replica of the legendary Frénay Feuille spoon, one of the rarest and most sought after of all absinthe spoons. As with the grilles, the photographs don't do these spoons justice - they need to be seen in the flesh for the workmanship to be fully appreciated.

This is a work of art. I believe it to be the greatest modern absinthe piece being made. I treasure this and the wormwood spoon I own, made for me by this great artist.

My 4th grille and 5th item in this series. What can you say?!, this Absurd , Glorious, Trumpetting centre-piece to my set. It is expensive, a little over sized compared to the range, though this can't be helped as even a regular sugar cube can't quite slot flat into its head for use.
This really is a keep sake though, and one day, someone will outlast me and obtain the elephant and wonder 'what kind of an age and society did this man live in?!!!'. We can only wonder, but he surely Lived.
