Lace and Nikole are father and daughter: he is a canadian with a long, white beard and jeans dungarees, who passionately works vintage wood collected in the canadian forests, while Nikole, a passionate photographer, decides to move from British Columbia to Toronto, Ontario. Lace thus starts to send her packages is some of which he includes his own wood spoons, hand carved using the woods he had been collecting in more than forty years.
This passionate craftsmanship has now become Herriott Grace, a perfect glacial project that gives us the chance to receive a package of rustic beauty.
Nothing (or almost nothing) has changed: Lace is still living 3.500 kilometers far away from Nikole, creating simple shaped pieces that she then photographs in her studio.
Knives, pedestals, spoons, bowls and cookie cutters, they all come from love for maple grains, gnarled black walnut logs, or the aromatic perfume of arbutus.
A charming imperfection to enjoy with home made jam, shortcrust pastry and, if you have it, the warmth of a fireplace.
