This provincial pitchfork from China’s Shanxi province was crafted in the 19th century and consists of a single, continuous piece of wood. By controlling its growth as a young plant, the farmer or gardener was able to bend and sculpt a tree naturally into the shape of a pitchfork. The pitchfork has been carved with a long, slender handle and four sharp tines, minimally worked to preserve its organic form and occasional knotted burl. Burnished smooth from years of use, the pitchfork has a rustic charm and is ideal today as a natural accent piece to a garden or farmhouse modern interior.
