    Details

    ITEM#: 11542517

    This olive wood salt pot is carved from very old tree stumps on the Kahero Farm in Kenya's Rift Valley. The handmade dish features an oblong shape and shows a totally unique design in the natural grains of the wood.

    Product Features:
    • Oblong shape
    • Handcrafted of natural wood pieces
    • Measures approximately 2.5 to 3 inches in diameter

    Story Behind the Art:
    These olive wood salt pots are carved from very old tree stumps on the Kahero Farm in Kenya's Rift Valley. The Kahero Farm is just about 10 miles north of the Equator in the Great Rift Valley. It was a forest many years ago where people cut down trees for firewood and charcoal. The new owners of the farm saved the brown olive (Olea Africana) stumps of trees that were cut down decades earlier and taught the local herdsmen to carve bowls and spoons from the aged wood. No two bowls are alike. Every bowl is made according to the grain in the wood. The only power tool involved is a chain saw used to cut the stumps into workable pieces. After that, the carvers use machetes, chisels, and other homemade tools, some made from old harrow disks. The bowls are finished with broken glass bottles and sand paper and are then dipped in liquid paraffin, which protects the beauty of the wood.

    • A gift for the person who has everything

      I bought this as a gift for someone who seems to like nothing anyone ever buys him - unless he specifies what you buy. He is an extraordinary chef and I thought this was unique. I have never seen him so happy after opening a present from me!! He was ecstatic! I had read mixed reviews so was a bit nervous about the purchase- but the size and workmanship was perfect, just like the picture. This is a winner!!

      Very disappointed. Color is not rich and varied like online. It is pale and no real color variations. Very small. Looks like plastic.

    • not as shown, very poorly made

      I received a very differently styled cup - not at all as shown. The cup was very rough, had been "rough sanded" with gouges showing that had not been taken out. The style was completely different - looked like a coffee cup. and the top edges were chipped and split, so there were sharp edges. This is a horrible product.

    • A neat way to present salt at your table

      I bought this for my daughter who has a farm in Vt. as I thought it would blend in. She loves it and so does her 6 yo daughter who is fascinated with the small accompanying spoon. It's delightful. Thank you. One of my better purchases.

    • Charming gift for a cook!

      I spied this little gem while searching for a Christmas gift for a niece who loves to cook with a tiny apartment. The glow on her face as she opened it told me I'd hit the spot. It's a very small, well-made spice bowl. She will use it in her culinary endeavors and enjoy it as an out-of-the way decorative piece, too.
