Fiona Glover has a lifelong interest in woodcraft and design, and was drawn to spoon carving due to its gentle and meditative process. She initially learnt traditional techniques in greenwood carving and has since developed her practice to also work with seasoned hardwoods that are either recycled, or offcuts from furniture making that would otherwise go to waste. Fiona shares her love of spoon carving by teaching workshops in Canberra and Sydney.

Fiona’s hand carved woodenware is sold under the label Twig to Table at selected outlets in Canberra including the National Gallery of Australia Shop, the National Library of Australia Bookshop, the Canberra Glasssworks and Craft ACT. Fiona is a student of the Furniture studio at the ANU School of Art and Design.
