LOVESPOONS trace their roots back to the 1600’s. They are hand carved tokens of love or high esteem, each an extraordinary work of art. 

My individually designed, hand-carved LOVESPOONS are a unique art form which  can be given at a wide range of occasions. They make memorable wedding gifts, lovely anniversary markers and are wonderful, personal presents at housewarmings,  christenings,  birthdays or any other occasion where a deep  degree of caring and individuality are important.

I have been carving lovespoons for over 20 years and have made it something of a mission to promote this lovely tradition as much as possible.  To that end, I have written two books, “The Fine Art of Carving Lovespoons” and “Lovespoons: The Art and Traditions of a Romantic Craft” and I contribute regular articles to WoodCarving Magazine (UK) and Woodcarving Illustrated (USA).  Although I make a few ‘off the rack’ spoons, the vast majority of my work is done to custom commission, enabling me to work directly with my clients to create a design which perfectly reflects their personal circumstances.It is my firm belief that no gift you can give will ever embody the depth of love, sentiment and passion that a love spoon can.  If you require a special present for your self, your loved-ones or for someone you hope will become a loved-one, you owe it to yourself to commission one of my exceptional hand-crafted lovespoons.

Thank you, so much for the offer of help. Though I am not a consumer at the moment, I know plenty of people who would love to have your book. I will pass the info along to them.We have a good amount of apple, and some cherry on the property. I had set aside some apple for my project,intending it for when the snow falls.With all the rain we have plenty of wet wood now:)I guess I could get started. I have a year til my 40th wedding anniversary.

Hey, David, congrats on the book. Your work is stunning. I cherish a little love spoon that me mom brought back from Wales. It is, of course, a tourist spoon, not a work of art like yours. But I broke it once and tenderly mended it, then wrote a poem about it.My Aunt, an artist, gave me instructions last year of how to dry my own wood and begin to carve my own spoon. The wood is drying.I will enjoy seeing your web page.Thanks for sharing.

Hello, David!I'll put something up on it with an Amazon link, too. If you send me one, we'll do a review on the static site, americymru.com, also and spam it all over the internet, with a press release if you don't mind.Also, did you see we're stupid enough to try to organize a big fat Eisteddfod here with rock bands, et all, next year? Ceri made a group for it, Left Coast Eisteddfod, go and check it out. Would you be interested in coming down for that and hawking your book and displaying your work here in Portland?
