    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.

    • Lovely Root

      Mine is beautiful and makes a lovely natural centerpiece. I filled it with polished stones. It has a sheen to it, but not too shiny. No weird smell. Mine is not quite as deep as the one in the photo, but not too flat, either.

    • Exquisite

      This bowl is so unique. It is just beautiful. It's great for Caesar salad where you rub the garlic in to the wood. It also makes a nice centerpiece.

    • Wooden bowl...

      Even though it's a little smaller than I would have liked it to be, I kind of love it anyway. It's got a very original, rustic look with natural "imperfections" but still looks polished and well finished. It gives a warm finish to our living room sitting on the coffee table there. We've gotten many compliments on it so far, which is always nice :)

    • Very poor quality, does not match the picture

      The picture of is a deep, relatively thin-walled bowl, but this is really the opposite. It is too shallow to use as a salad-bowl, which is what I bought it for; I think it might have made a reasonable candy-dish. However, the craftsmanship was also very poor - the finish was not rubbed in and my fingers were a little oily from handling the bowl; it was not evenly sanded and still had saw-marks on it. I did not think this was a usable product at all, I was very disappointed. To Overstock's credit, they took an immediate return and under the circumstances, waived the shipping costs and returned 100% of my money.

    • Perfect as a photo prop!

      I was looking for a natural prop for my newborn photography business and stumbled on this. It is perfect! And I can use it as a fabulous fruit bowl when it's not being used. LOVE it! :)

    • Nice bowl, smaller than advertised

      I like the bowl. It has a lot of character a nice look. It seems of good quality, and will make a nice addition as a decorative bowl. Beware, however, that the dimensions specified in the product details are grossly off. The bowl is much smaller than stated. In fact, there is a product sticker on the bottom of the bowl stating 16” diameter by 3” tall, which is a long ways off the stated 18” x 17” x 5.5”. The practical size of the bowl’s inner area is 3” at the deepest, which consists of a few inch wide area, then tapers up to the sides. The average depth of the bowl is approximately 1.5-2.0” if measured by volume. If size is a concern, as it was for my intended use of the bowl, then beware. On the bowl itself, I would give it 5 stars. On matching the product description, I would give it 1 start. Overall, I had to rate it in the middle of these. I’ve documented the specifics of the bowl I received with some photos.

    • Nice but not remotely the same as photo!

      This bowl was a nice quality.. but it's not even remotely LIKE the one in the photo, which is what I thought I was getting. I think if the bowls are THIS VARIED, Overstock should put several photos online so you have an IDEA of what you might be getting. I wanted to put a photo of the bowl I got (its nice just not what I wanted) but I am unable to do it here.

    • beautiful!

      Have been looking at rustic bowls like this for awhile. This one is so unusual and interesting it is a conversation piece alone. But also very useful and makes a salad a centerpiece on a table.

    • In the photo, the bowl looks like salad dressing could get caught in the crease. Is this correct? Or is the bowl smooth inside to prevent oil or dressing from getting caught as it would in a crevice or fold? The bowl was beautiful and I would like to purchase it if I was certain there would be no problem with nooks and crannies inside.

      • Hello pariscat01, This unique bowl is intended for serving food or as a decorative conversation piece. The bowl does have nooks and crannies inside where salad dressing could potentially get stuck. We recommend a gentle hand washing to remove the food particles. I hope this helps you. Please let us know if you have additional questions.

    • Is this product known as the ENRICO WOODWORKS 2240S, extra large salad bowl ?

    • "Features" says it's black and made of China. It's brown and made of wood. "Features" for products seem unreliable.

      • Hello zammer, Sorry that information is incorrect. This is wood and wood color. Thank you for shopping with us!

    • Hi! I saw from the previous question/answer that it can be used for food or decoration, but can this bowl hold water continuously... if it were used as a kind of vase, for example. Thank you for your reply!

      • Hello drbrk. Thank you for your interest in the Enrico Rootworks Extra Large Flat Cut Root Bowl (China). Yes, this can hold water, if you wanted to use this as a vase. I hope this answer helps you, and thanks for shopping with us.

    • last question - I promise- please advise if this bowl can hold water or liquids without leaking or bleeding through? Thank you.

      • This bowl is finished with a food-safe lacquer that will allow it to hold liquids without leaking.
