It's time for some changes here at manos. We're extending our heart - the ceramics studio - into the shop area. More clay and more creativity! The shop will be focused on ceramics, plants and beautiful things and continue being the inspiring place it's become. We start the change with renovating during week 44 and 45 when the shop will be closed.

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 Thursday April 26th. We're open until 8 pm, welcome to swing by for a soft drink and nice discounts in the shop!

Latest items in the shop

Vendor: Karin Eriksson
Type: Ceramics
Price: 325.00

A beautiful votive candle holder, cast thinly in bone china, a translucent material that makes the holders glow when a little candle burns inside. The soft glow spreads a calm and beautiful atmosphere in any environment which makes for a great gift even for those difficult to buy something to.

Bone china is a very strong material so even though it’s really thin, the candle holder is actually very strong. The pattern is originally sewn with the sewing machine on paper. After that the image is screen printed and fired into the ceramic surface.

Designer / maker: Karin Eriksson. Karin is the founder of manos and she has her ceramics studio at the back of the shop. Karin has a BA (hons) in ceramic design from Central St Martins University of Art and Design in London. 

Size (h x w): 6 x 5 cm (2.4 x 2 inches). 

Material: bone china

Care: Wash by hand with hot water and washing up liquid. If wax is spilled inside the votive holder, simply pour hot water in it and it will come off.
