Some kitchen utensils

Inspired by Tlingit spoons, this design for a pair of salad utensils is a commission for my friend Louisa.

Wikipedia : Tlingit -( pronounced-/ˈklɪŋkɨt/ or /ˈtlɪŋɡɨt/; also spelled Tlinkit) are an indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest Coast.[2] Their name for themselves is Lingít,[3] meaning “People of the Tides”[4] (pronounced [ɬɪnkɪ́t]). The Russian name Koloshi (Колоши) (from an Alutiiq term for the labret) or the related German name Koulischen may be encountered in older historical literature, such as Shelikhov’s 1796 map of Russian America.[5]
