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.

Beautiful smooth bowl. So pretty. Love it.Read More
This bowl looks like the picture except it comes very dull, not shiny. You can use some kind of wood polish to shine it up. The varying colors do look very similar to the picture. Overall I am happy with the bowl, just wish it came shiny like the picture.Read More
This is a really cool bowl. I am using it on my kitchen table with grapevine balls In it. I would have given it 5 stars, but the one I received has 3 rounded sides and one straight edge. Makes it look odd not being completely rounded. I realize they are all unique, but I would have preferred one a with little more uniform shape to it.Read More
I thought this was the most exceptional piece of work I have ever seen, and the wood was absolutely beautiful, yes I would recommend these to all my friends.Read More

A bowl that acts as a conversation piece. Very attractive when people enter and see causing many nice comments.Read More
I purchased two Shan Mu bowls, 1 large and 1 extra large. They were both very good quality for the price. Nice detail and very nice shapes. Unique shapes and wood grains. I purchased something similar a few months age and it was very nice also, but much more expensive. I would order these again if the need comes up. Or even for a gift.Read More
I've seen similar items at high-end stores at MUCH higher prices but the bowl from Overstock exceeded my expectations. It was a gift for a dear friend and she loved it. The bowl is very large and she uses it for fruit. It's gorgeous and a real "statement" piece for display all on its own. Highly recommend it.Read More
