Story Behind the Art: Rootwork items are carved from a species of Chinese Fir called Shan Mu, which grows abundantly in the mountains of Central China. Rootwork raw materials come from stumps left by logging operations, the removal of which allows faster re-growth of newly planted seedlings. Each gnarled stump is then transformed by skilled artisans into the gorgeous pieces.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
I was intrigued by the description of this product - large driftwood fruit bowl - as it would fit so well with the theme in my house. I expected something that looked more like driftwood found on North American beaches which this clearly isn't. It doesn't remind me of driftwood but rather interesting pieced wood. Everyone who sees it comments as it's so striking and unusual. If you're looking for something organic and unique, look no farther. It would be interesting on a wall as well as on a surface.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? The site mentioned that there would probably be color variations due to nature of composition but it was close to the photo.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It appears hand made which is a plus. It's too new to comment on durability with use, etc.
