I am a Welsh Love Spoon maker based in the South Wales Valleys. A love spoon is a wooden spoon carved and traditionally presented as a gift of romantic intent. The spoon was crafted to demonstrate the suitors skills and capability to provide for his intended. The craft of love spoon carving dates back to the 17th century.

This Lime Welsh Miners Love Spoon is made with local wood that I collect from local landscapers and tree surgeons.

Height is 27cm
Working time is 41 hours

With the exception of a scroll saw used to cut out the rough shape, all my spoons are hand carved using knives and chisels and finished in my home made spoon butter made from mineral oil and beeswax.
