Rootworks Medium Bowl
Whether for serving food or simply as a trinket
display, these hand-carved bowls are great conversation pieces and
as handy 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.
With an easy to clean food-safe lacquer finish they are a wonderful
addition to home and table. Each of our hand carved root bowls is
uniquely beautiful and stands alone as a natural work of art. These
fantastic pieces are carved from a species of Chinese Fir called
Shan Mu, which grows abundantly in the mountains of central China.
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. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind.
Knotholes and minor cracks add a unique charm. 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.
