This desert farm is harvesting food using nothing but sunlight and seawater. @sundrop_farms is using sunlight to turn seawater into fresh water to irrigate a greenhouse that grows 15 percent of Australia's annual tomato produce. http://www.sundropfarms.com/
A note from the two magical women who make our copper and bronze spoons ~
Truly handmade can be an elusive description these days. In the case of these hand forged spoons – the term handmade is both truthful and accurate. We (two ladies in the high desert of rural Northern Arizona) hand hammer each of these spoon bowls from brass, bronze and copper rounds. We cut and attach stems from bronze rod utilizing old school metal smith techniques like brazing. We melt down and recycle our bronze scrap in a hand-held crucible to create those amazing little golden drops on the ends of the Sun Drop spoons. We hand polish every spoon before it is wrapped in recycled tissue paper and shipped to its new owner.
In short - these spoons have been touched and attended to in every way.
When we created this business (bright star and buffalo) we wanted our designs to uplift the world. We also wanted to create truly handcrafted items that were accessible to as many people as possible.
Our studio continues to be a place of devotion . . . every piece we create is born from both heart and hand with the intention to nourish the spirit and remind the user to take a thousand moments a day (or more) to rest in the power of ritual.
In Love and Gratitude,
Natalie and Kelsey
