For thousands of years, expert carvers in mountainous regions of Eastern Asia have transformed gnarled stumps of Shan Mu fir trees into exquisite works of art such as this Root Wood Bowl. The stumps are left behind by sustainable logging operations and their removal allows faster growth of newly planted seedlings.
Each unique bowl is finished with a food-safe lacquer that protects and magnifies the natural beauty of the wood. Use as a centerpiece, basket, or for serving dry foods. Not recommended for hot foods or liquids due to the natural fissures and knotholes which may allow leakage. Exact sizes will vary due to the handcrafted nature of these bowls.
