Black Swan Handmade in the Wild!

As a tiny American made business we are connected to everything we make. Park makes everything from start to finish in our shop. After making each spoon, we wrap it up, and off it goes to its new home. It thrills us to be able to see our handmade spoons in use- so we want to share the beauty our customers capture. We will be sharing Black Swan in the Wild posts periodically throughout the year to showcase our handmade spoons at work! Each of our customers shares a sweet moment of their life with our heirloom American made kitchenware.

Happy New Year + BIG CHANGES

Happy New Year! We had an absolutely crazy 2015 holiday season that left us both exhausted and energized for the new year. We ended our holiday orders madness early to do the Renegade Craft Fair in Seattle. After the craft fair, we gave ourselves a week off, splitting time between Seattle and Portland. Just before leaving for the show, we decided that we were ready for a life change. The SF bay area has been good to us. We've met some really cool people, seen amazing nature, eaten wonderful food, and drank gallons of trendy, small batch roasted third-wave coffee.

SPOON CARE

Our spoons {and other kitchenware} are heirloom items, that should last your lifetime and be passed on to future generations, if kept well. To clean your spoon simply rinse it with warm water and allow it to air dry. Avoid using harsh soaps, these strips the wood of its natural oils {which are naturally anti-bacterial}. If you need to disinfect use diluted vinegar or other organic cleaner. Never soak your spoon in water or any other liquid. Do not put your spoon in the dishwasher. Dishwashing cycles are not intended for wooden products.
