Meet Dave

 

I was born in Cardiff, Wales and hold City and Guilds Certification in cabinet making and furniture design as well as Canadian Inter-provincial Certification in Joinery.  I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in Education but have been in the wood trade for nearly 30 years.  For the last 20 years I have dedicated myself to lovespoon carving and my work is now found in collections throughout the world.


Every lovespoon I create is designed and carved by me alone. 

Lovespoon carving is my passion.  I constantly strive to expand the boundaries of design while creating unique and innovative carvings which respect and honour the tradition of the Welsh lovespoon.    I believe the romantic, thoughtful, hand-crafted lovespoon still has an important role to play in our increasingly sterile and pre-fabricated society.  My goal is to continue the tradition of the lovespoon while introducing it to as wide an audience as possible.  

My LOVESPOONS are for sale only through this website.  None are carved with laser or CNC computerized cutters!!!
