Root Wood Extra Large Bowl
These large-scale hand-carved wooden bowls are great conversation pieces and as wonderful for serving as they are beautiful. Every bowl is different as they are each carved by skilled artisans interpreting the wild grain patterns and natural shapes of the root or stump they come from. Handmade servers with organic branch handles are included for eco-friendly and stylish serving. With an easy to clean food-safe lacquer finish they are a wonderful addition to home and table.
RootWorks® bowls, platters, and decorative items are carved from a species of Chinese Fir called Shan Mu, which grows abundantly in the mountains of Central China. RootWorks® raw materials come from stumps left by logging operations, the removal of which allows for faster reforestation. The stumps are removed by hardy teams along the mountain slopes and transported to the remote carving villages. After careful cleaning and grading each gnarled stump is then transformed by skilled carvers into the gorgeous and unique RootWorks® products we proudly offer. Watching the carvers read each organic chunk of the fragrant fir is a thing of wonder – the rough stump is turned and studied, inner and outer surfaces rough-hewn and balanced, shaved and nibbled with sharp tools, until the final form starts to emerge, each one different from the last. Each piece is then carefully sanded, smoothed, and lacquered, revealing the depth of grain, stunning color, and variety of sculptural shapes that makes RootWorks® a winning collection.
