World’s Most Beautiful Fireplace Tools from Mjölk in Toronto

Annie Quigley February 09, 2017

New from Toronto shop Mjölk: handcrafted fire tools from a Winnipeg, Canada, studio that will “enrich with use and age”—just in time for winter blizzards. Here’s a look.

Mjolk Thom Fougere Fire Tools

Above: The fire tools, available in blackened brass with walnut (left) and brushed brass with oak (right) are handmade by local designer Thom Fougere in partnership with Mjölk. They are inspired by “a long-term study into man’s historical relationship with fire, hearths, and the tools used for tending to a fire,” simplified for the needs of the modern hearth.

Mjolk Thom Fougere Fire Tools Brushed Brass Full

Above: The set, shown in brushed brass with oak, includes a poker modeled after a tree branch (a tool that “instinctively lends itself to tending to a fire in the wilderness,” Fougere says); a deep, spade-shaped shovel that efficiently collects soot; a horse-hair brush; and a Shaker-inspired stand; $1,595 CAD ($1,212 USD).

Mjolk Thom Fougere Fire Tools Brushed Brass Handle

Above: The brush and shovel are fitted with brass loops for hanging. The poker’s leather handle (wrapped by an artisan at the Canada-based shop Sore Hands Old Tools) protects and hands and hides a magnet that affixes the poker to the stand.

Mjolk Thom Fougere Fire Tools Blackened Brass Full

Above: The shovel’s long walnut handle evokes a Japanese chef knife. The tool set in blackened brass with walnut; $1,795 CAD ($1,364 USD) is available to order.
