Unika och personliga handtäljda träskedar av Marie Eklund

Marie Eklunds ljuvliga (och funktionella) skedar är personligheter. Varje sked är unik och med en helt egen historia. Jag använder min sked till att ta nötter och frön till frukostgröten och jag kan lova att det lyfter frukosten till en ny nivå. Skedarna finns att köpa även i webbutiken.

Träslagen som skedarna är gjorda i varierar. På manos har vi skedar gjorda i äpple från Julita, kastanj från Swedenborgsgatan i Stockholm, rönn från Maries egna skog i Närke, björk från Sätergläntan i Dalarna och sälg från Kvarngatan i Stockholm...

Marie beskriver skedarnas arbetsgång:
Hitta bra virke med form jag gillar. Letandet sker tex bland arborister, privata trädgårdar, skog och parker. Klyv ämnet, yxa till en grov form, tälj noggrant efter fiberriktningen då de blir hållbara trots sin tunnhet och sitt smala skaft. Ämnet torkar långsamt ett par dagar för att få en finare yta innan rentäljning. Dags för ännu en ytbehandling där jag bränner och linoljar föremålet i flera omgångar. Detta gör dem ännu starkare. Arbetet tar ca tre veckor inklusive härdning. 


Skötsel
Olja in någon droppe linolja ibland, putsa med tex smörpapper för blankare yta. Ej diskmaskin.

Handmade candle by Andrej Urem Collection New York
Materials: Organic soy wax, cotton wick
Size: Size (h x w): 10 x 10 cm (4 x 4 inches).

A candle burns for approximately 60 hours. Please note that on the firs time you burn allow burning for 2 hours to ensure an even melting, as this will prevent tunneling.

About the candles

"I embarked on the process of candle making a few years ago. As time passed, the alchemy of the candle making was revealed to me, making me see that each candle possesses its unique individual character, and a life of its own.  

My candles are hand poured and made out of the best quality ecologically friendly soy wax. The soybeans used are grown in the USA, and the wax made from them is specially blended with palm and beeswax to enhance needed firmness. The flame burns a cylinder inside the core in such a way as to leave the sides of the candle to remain intact, transparent, and illuminated. The burning time of each candle can exceed more than sixty hours." (Andrej Urem)
