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.

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
What I do not like is having to type 50 characters in order to fill this review out when it doesn't need 50 characters. It is a beautiful accessory in my Living Room.Read More
I returned this item because it was considerably larger than I was expecting.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
Questions & Answers
For fruit dish
Because I have a smaller one a I needed a larger one.
Is this bowl smooth on the inside so that it can take daily use as a salad mixing bowl? I need to be certain that oil or salad dressing will not get trapped in any crevices.
Hello pariscat01, This stunning bowl has received excellent reviews! This does have crevices, but the finish is food safe. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.
the description says the bowl is black, but the photo is clearly brown. How can I be sure .....I do not want a black bowl!
This is a wooden bowl. It is brown.
