Each one of Marie Eklund's stunning (and functional) spoons is a personality, unique and with it's own story. The woods she uses vary: at manos we have spoons made (for instance) from apple tree from Julita, chestnut from Swedenborgsgatan in Stockholm, rowan tree from Marie's own forest in Närke, birchwood from Sätergläntan in Dalarna and sallow tree from Kvarngatan in Stockholm...

Care advice
Treat the spoons once in a while with a drop of linseed oil, polish with for instance greaseproof paper for a shiny surface. Do not wash in the dishwasher.


This is how Marie describes her working process:
"Find wood with a shape that I like. The search for wood happens through for instance arborists, private gardens, woods and parks. Split the wood, use the axe to shape it into a coarse shape, carve carefully in the fiber direction (this make the spoons strong despite their thinness and narrow handle). The spoons dry slowly for a few days to gain a finer surface before clean carving, after which it is time for yet another surface treatment where I burn and treat the spoons with linseed oil several times. This makes them even stronger. The whole process takes roughly three weeks from wood to hardening.

SoFo night at manos on Wednesday 31st May. We're open until 8 pm, welcome to swing by for a soft drink and nice discounts in the shop!

Handmade candle by Andrej Urem Collection New York
Materials: Organic soy wax, cotton wick
Size: Size (h x w): 10 x 10 cm (4 x 4 inches).

A candle burns for approximately 60 hours. Please note that on the firs time you burn allow burning for 2 hours to ensure an even melting, as this will prevent tunneling.

About the candles

"I embarked on the process of candle making a few years ago. As time passed, the alchemy of the candle making was revealed to me, making me see that each candle possesses its unique individual character, and a life of its own.  

My candles are hand poured and made out of the best quality ecologically friendly soy wax. The soybeans used are grown in the USA, and the wax made from them is specially blended with palm and beeswax to enhance needed firmness. The flame burns a cylinder inside the core in such a way as to leave the sides of the candle to remain intact, transparent, and illuminated. The burning time of each candle can exceed more than sixty hours." (Andrej Urem)
