Husband and wife team, Joanna and Robbie Ballentine of Birmingham, Alabama, craft these beautiful wooden utensils by hand. They named their shop after their grandfathers who were both skilled carpenters back in the day.
Their intention with the shop was to create an "organic, imperfect and one of a kind product." Joanna, "We let the grain of wood determine the next move." With each utensil they carve, (made of walnut, cherry or olive wood) they produce a unique, functional tool that has a beauty all its own.
Joanna and Robbie offer over a dozen utensils to complement any kitchen. The nice thing is, these are tools to stand the test of time and much like the passion and skills of their granddads- be passed down, generation to generation.
Check out the entirety of the lovely Felix Glenn shop here. The bonus find is Joanna's gorgeous blog, irrelephant, which I just discovered and have now bookmarked. And thanks Courtney, I think I'll add this shop to my list of favorites too...
