I make spoons and other kitchen utensils using my hands and a few simple tools

When I was young my family lived in a rural part of California. We had access to lots of wild space, so my most vivid memories as a child were playing, experimenting, and working with natural objects. Fast forward 30 years and I'm still doing the same thing!

I now live in Liverpool and enjoy exploring the wilds of the UK. I have a small plot of mature woodland in North Wales where I source most of the wood for my spoons. It mostly contains ash, oak, elm, cherry, and hazel. I started carving shortly after purchasing the plot - there was so much beautiful material freely available that I just had to start making things out of it! After carving nearly every day for a year, honing my skills with the few hand tools I use, I opened this shop to share some of my designs. I am constantly chasing better forms and interesting decorations, so check back regularly for shop updates.

For me, using hand carved wooden spoons is a way to bring nature into our homes, connect with our simpler and slower past, and encourage mindfulness about the earth and our future in it.
