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!

Karin Eriksson, took her degree in ceramic design from Central St Martins University of Art and Design in London. ”I've worked with clay since the age of 15 and since the year 2000 I work with it professionally full time. In 2008 I started my shop manos, where I sell select design and crafts from the whole world. Ceramics is a large and important part of my life and something that I enjoy immensly and find developing to work with.”
