SMALL SQUARE OLIVE WOOD BOWL
3 in stock
This small bowl handmade by Kenyan artisans is carved from olive wood. Because of its high density and resistance, olive wood is very convenient for kitchen items that will keep for a very long time. With its square shape and angles decorated with aseptic, polished and batik-dyed cow bone with African tribal patterns, this bowl will bring a chic and exotic touch to your table.
The item being handcarved from the whole olive wood, please note that each piece is unique because of the unique nature of the veins in each tree. Therefore no other one is identical to that online.
Material: Olive wood and cow bone.
Care Instructions: Wash by hand only and dry immediately. Do not let soak in water. Regularly coat with food oil (ideally olive oil) will restore the wood’s radiance and guarantee its impermeability.
Our beautiful olive wood kitchen utensils are entirely hand-carved with love and passion as you can see in the video below by our carver Christopher Ndolo, who lives in the small village of Kivuthini-Kibwezi about 190km from Nairobi, Kenya.
Carver for more than 25 years, he is specialized in the work of kitchen items in olive wood, art that allows him to feed and school his family of 5 children. Unfortunately, like many African craftsmen, his achievements barely exceed the framework of his native region and we wish through this website, highlight these beautiful objects of our daily life that can be also use as decoration like bowls for fruit or appetizer.
