ABOUT CANNON RIVER BOWL AND SPOON
I'm Benjamin Leatham, the wood artist. I create functional home utensils, bowls, and cutting boards. I also take custom orders for rocking chairs, furniture, and cabinetry. My studio is located in Cannon Falls, MN. I source my lumber from the region, mainly the Twin Cities and southeast Minnesota.
I live by the philosophy of "surround yourself with things you find beautiful and use them every day." My kitchen pieces are all food-safe, meant for daily use. I am inspired by the beauty of nature and my work highlights the personality of each piece of wood.
I was raised in rural Garett County, Maryland. In 2015, my family and I moved to Minnesota from the Washington, D.C. region.
