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.
The cut and finish of the bowl look like a 9 year old made it and was hurried doing it. I am going to try use my dremel tool to at least take some of the edges off of the cuts. If I could send it back with out losing shipping and handling fees I would. Don't waste your money on this!
the bowl is in excellent and very pretty, you have to remember that they are handmade and to vary.
mine is not as big as one shown, but looks really nice. i am satisfied with purchase, and thinking of ordering the larger one
I am thrilled with this beautiful bowl which I gave as a wedding present. It is a bit smaller than it looks in the picture, but is large enough for a salad etc. for two or three people.
I was very pleased with the service of Overstock. The first bowl I received had a hairline crack near one of the handles and also the bowl was extremely small because it is carved to match the root it comes from. I called Overstock and they expedited a new bowl to me which arrived promptly. This one was perfect and the bride and groom loved it. I also bought the giraffe shaped carved spoons to accompany the bowl. I would love to receive such a gift myself! I love choosing items that are Fair Trade and help to benefit others. Thank you Overstock.
