Made in Pennsylvania

In a world of plastic and metal, Hannah Simons' products offer a breath of fresh air, providing functionality in beautiful solid cherry. Like any artist, she looks for inspiration in the world around her. She loves visiting nearby museums, walking in the woods, and thinking up new things to make that are useful, beautiful, and make people smile.

Hannah was born in the mountains of rural Pennsylvania, just a few yards away from her dad's wood shop. He started making wooden spoons before Hannah was born, so she grew up watching his business grow. When she turned five, she started oiling spoons; by six, she was packing orders; at seven, she was answering phones; and at eight, she worked in her dad's booth at a craft show for the first time. She loved all of it!

After completing her B.A. in History, Hannah spent some time working part-time jobs, but nothing ever felt like the right fit. She filled her spare time coming up with ideas for things to make. Though her days are never filled with as much imagining as she'd wish, she wouldn't trade places with anyone!
