Richard Downes Lovespoons
Richard has been carving his beautifully unique lovespoons for almost 20 years, having previously worked as an antique restorer specialising mainly in 17th & 18th century furniture in the English Cotswolds.
Prior to this Richard studied at a London Woodcarving and Guilding college, where he studied traditional ornamental designs from early classical civilisations to the Victorian period.
The antique carved furniture of the past is what inspires his uniquely created lovespoons which are all carved by hand so no two spoons are identical.
His work is sold all over the world and is a lovely reminder of home for anyone with a connection to Wales.
