Something deliciously wicked this way comes

In many ways this one is an homage to Harry Potter.
When I first started thinking about it. I wanted to use the footsteps that you see on the Marauder’s Map in the story. The one that opens with the quote,” I solemnly swear I am up to no good”. I tried it with high heel foot steps as I wanted it to be a women getting into mischief in the kitchen but no one recognized what it was.
The words are a tasty variation to a song in Harry Potter called Double Trouble but the original source of the line “something wicked this way comes” is act IV, scene 1 of the Scottish play:
By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.
In the end, I decided that one very high healed shoe would work. The words are placed to create a leg for the shoe and to create a striped stocking for the leg.
We all have a “playful” side and this Kitchen Wand was created to inspire it to come out and play.
Each individually handcrafted 13 inch beech wood spoon comes via a protected, managed forest in Europe. Once in Canada, they are charmed with a laser engraver and dipped in a bath of grape seed oil and melted beeswax which brings out the grain and deepens the tone of the wood.
Washing in warm water, by hand, and the occasional wipe with a food safe oil will help extend the life of a Kitchen Wand. The image is burned into the wood and will not “come off”. Over time though, as the patina of use developes, the image and the engraving on the handle “My Kitchen Wand” may soften.
