Story Behind the Art:
My husband and I started out sourcing products for customers. Over the years I have seen many designs made by artisans and have been presented with sketches from many clients. We have to interpret the requested design so that it can be fashioned in a manner that the wood workers can make consistently and that is pleasing to the client from their original idea. We try to adapt existing wood workers designs to fit the client's desires. We have started to create our own designs using as much of the scrap and recycled wood as possible. These designs grow from trends and ideas that we have seen over the years and that customer's voice they would like to see.
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.

Questions & Answers
Hello jengerry99, These wood balls are so uniquely beautiful! Any wood item finished in Tung Oil can be outdoors but not in standing water; no wood finish can be left in standing water without eventually breaking down. Also, the extreme changes in weather, ie.. summer to winter, with moisture on the wood can cause the wood to expand then shrink and cause cracks. It would not be unusual to have one split in that case. Additionally, if these are left outdoors they must be re-oiled, depending on how harsh the environment is which will determine when and how many times. This is because the sun's UV rays will break down and dry out the oil over time. We have customers in England that use these in water fountains. They re-oil monthly as they are in water at all times. They replace them once they fail. Sitting outdoors you would need to look at them and determine how often to re-oil. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.
