These beautiful hooks are handcrafted by artist Scott Foster. Turned on a lathe; cut with a sloyd knife, hand sanded, and finished. Hooks are made to order.
American Holly has traditionally been used during the holidays as a decoration but this wood is beautiful when used for handcrafted items such as crochet hooks. I would describe a finished piece as creamy white.
American Holly is a bush and not a tree so the access to large volumes of wood are scarce at best. Normally this wood is used for smaller decorative objects.
If you are planning on purchasing a couple of hooks Gabon Ebony goes well with the stark contrast of Holly.
