By Hand & Heart
Handmade wooden spoons and home-ware made from reclaimed, off-cuts that may usually go to landfill, ethically sourced, or foraged timber. Hand carved, made by heart in the sunshine coast hinterland, Australia.
"After having spent the last 20 years in dark rooms behind computer monitors (my background is in film and television post production), I found myself wanting something more tactile, a more hands on way to express my creativity. My family and I made the decision to move to the country in search of the life we'd dreamed of, for ourselves and for our young boys. Having always being drawn to working with my hands, in particular wood, I started carving wooden spoons. I love creating something entirely by hand, it is almost mystical and I’m fascinated by the process of creation by subtraction. I thoroughly enjoy being a maker. This is a small part of our journey, our urban exodus, in search of a more simple meaningful life.” - Brett Manson
