"We can wait" an art piece made of recycled materials, by Maria Högberg

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 in papier macher by Sara Hjelmstedt/artedicarte. Sara's animals are part real, part fantasy and always unique individuals. This bear with a curious look in its eyes is made to hang on the wall. It's lovely with something three dimensional happening on a wall, on it's own or in conversation with other art work.
