A lovin’ spoonful.

Spoons are one of the simplest tools in the house, and one man’s earliest eating utensils. Louise Forbes’ simple, charming, carved wooden spoons are full of traditional, rustic, homely appeal. Form meets function and while unassuming, these are objects of captivating beauty.

This maker’s spoons are pick-up-able and caressably smooth. The symmetry and positioning of the grain in each unique item is no accident – each piece of wood has been carefully selected, and it shows. These are spoons you can get to know personally, enjoying the way the grain runs along and around the handle or maps the contours of the bowl of the spoon.

The large scooping spoon is ideal for piling generously high with fruit, salad or vegetables. We love to experiment with interesting, colourful salads and vegetables – from quinoa to beetroot and various bean and lentil concoctions – all of which deserve one of Louise's beautiful serving spoons thoughtfully positioned alongside at the table.

Cherry Wood Large Scoop Spoon hand carved by Louise Forbes for AUTHOR

What our customers say...

I received my order of candles, some for myself and some for Christmas pressies.

Author has gone to the trouble of beautifully wrapping the ones I had for as gifts, which made giving them to my family such a joy! And I am thoroughly enjoying burning the ones I purchased for myself. I think Tranquil is my favourite and remind me of being in a very luxurious spa! Thank you Author! Can I order some more please?!
