I am a spoon carver from Co. Limerick, Ireland. My love for spoon carving and green woodwork began around 6 years ago and I moved to St. John’s in 2019 to focus on craft full time. After spending the last 8 years as a historic building surveyor in Ireland, I have gained an enormous respect for all traditional crafts, particularly tool making and green woodwork. My work focuses on making simple, functional and beautiful hand carved wooden spoons and bowls.

Our Artisans

The Quidi Vidi Village Plantation is a craft incubation facility, designed to accelerate the growth of emerging artists and their businesses.

Each of the craftspeople who lease studios in the Plantation have passed through a rigorous selection process, and must participate in an extensive training regime.

We welcome the public to come and watch these craftspeople work, and to support them by purchasing some of their fine craft items.
