Absinthe Sugar Tongs (Sterling Silver) - Kirk Burkett
Please note that these spoons are shipped directly from Kirk Burkett's studio in Virginia. The Artemisia Sugar Tongs are designed to complement the range of grilles and spoons, with the claws of wormwood leaf. 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. -- The prices shown here all INCLUDE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING. --
