All our spoons are unique, handcarved from fresh wood from real trees- mostly birch, some alder, spork, maple or mountainash-

Prepared in the rough with the axe, carved with straight- and crooked knives (spoonknives), and finished with scrapers and saturated with pure, unspoiled linseedoil. We sell our spoons and also carve on demand: from ladles to guaranteed plastic-free babyspoons with- or without inscriptions..

Price indication: small sugarscoops start at € 10, dutch model round spoons start at € 20, Swedish models start at € 45 (ex vat and postage)

  Carving Spoons      

Spooncarving is a complex combination of different aspects to me:  it’s about the completeness in the process of producing the simple product- selecting an appropriate ten year old birchtree in the forest, respectfully felling and slaughtering, and the finished product, scraping, smoothing and submerging it in linseed oil.

Spooncarving is ritualistic as well. It’s in the making of a humble and usable product, fit for everyday use. It’s an endless journey in perfecting methods and improving design.

Working this way always comes with risk and doubt, Skills need to be proven time and time again and the challenge is to succeed.

The process is not long or tedious, but improves with practice. A simple scoop can even be made within half an hour, a Swedish porridge spoon in half a day. Finishing a spoon is a special pleasure. After days of saturation in linseed oil, the spoon is beautifully translucent and the finished product of in your hands.

Over the course of time, my horizon has been shifting. I know for sure that I can go on for years from now, in search quality and perfection. There is more to learn.

Spooncarving is a way to focus, forget everything else, to concentrate while following a yet unknown route.

And finally, the carving of spoons brings me closer to the essence of my local history- We humans have done things like this for thousands of years.
