For 35 years Jim Wilson's spoons could be found daily at the Pike Place Market in Seattle Washington.  In 2017 Jim Wilson retired from the Market and moved to Mandeville Louisiana. This move affords Jim some well-deserved time off with family as he acclimates to life down south. Southern Louisiana hosts an enormous art community and with New Orleans close by, Jim is looking to not only influence, but also let this art scene inspire the next chapter of his creativity.

Soon you will be able to bring a little southern charm into your kitchen. Jim is in the process of setting up a new woodworking shop and is looking forward to once again producing hand crafted wooden cooking utensils. They will continue to be heirloom quality, designed with the perfect balance between form and function. Each item is of the highest quality unvarnished, unstained, natural woods, that will stay smooth, lovely, and bright for decades.

Prices range from $25 for the smallest pieces to $110 for a one-cup ladle.  Spoons tend to be $38 to $85 depending on the wood and size. Please know all woods are subject to availability.  Each item is hand crafted, the labor is intensive, and Jim is just one man, so wait times vary but are well worth it. Each spoon is a work of art in it's own right, and no two are ever the same. Forty-five years of experience and a deep love of fine woodwork are built into every piece. The woods are completely natural and vary quite a bit in hue and grain.  Each one is beautiful and unique.

Much of Jim's work is for sale with shopping cart ordering. Please know that he is not currently fulfilling orders but will resume once his shop is set up.


Thank you for your patience during this transition period.
