“Nugget Wilson's journey into designing a spoon or other kitchen utensils begins with a unique piece of wood. All decisions made concerning the shape and size are determined with the first feel of the wood. He uses the 'leftovers,' the bits and pieces, the 'nuggets' that the carpenter can no longer use. He uses the burls and wild grain patterns that are not appropriate for what the cabinetmaker needs. His signature is the curved and crooked handles made to comfortably fir the cook's hand.
