Rootworks Appetizer Medium Platter
There are countless uses for these large scale
wooden platters. Use them as chip-and-dip servers, for appetizers,
bread plates, or even for displays of special shells and rocks.
They make a wonderful addition to your home or cabin and complement
every type of decor. Each is hand-carved and no two are exactly
alike. Each of our hand carved root platters is uniquely beautiful
and stands alone as a natural work of art. The stumps left by
logging are reclaimed prior to replanting and hand-carved by local
artisans into the shapes in this collection. They are beautiful and
practical items that bring their own unique organic charm into the
home. RootWorks platters 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.
