Wooden spoons by Marie Eklund


Photography: Anna Kern

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.

Latest items in the shop

Out of a light wood, Mikael Nilsson hand carves birds, horses, elks and people. Whatever he turns his hands to, he captures the character of the object. Mikael says this about his figures "I want the things I make to convey emotions like curiosity, anger, fear or melancholy." The wooden birds look almost as if they have real feathers, but it is all wood that Mikael spray paints to make them really dark black. Mikael is active in Linköping in the south of Sweden.

The birds are made in two sizes, Seniors and juniors.
