Story Behind the Art: Ms. Kwan says: 'When I was young, I lived in Tha Waii Village, a small village in Northern Thailand, Chiangmai province. I grew up in handicraft village where amazing hand-carved items are common. I was one among other kids who could not figure the beauty out of these daily-seen works. At the present time, I understand the meaning of AMAZING, how a bowl could be made from only one single piece of recycled wood and how the old teak wood could present such beautiful brown grains. I realized this salad bowl set is such a precious item to share with all of you who see a beauty and value behind it as I do.'
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.
Do not buy these bowls. The workmanship is shoddy, crude. Plus all of the bowls have imperfections that make them look like they were made from cheap, scrap wood. Not all of the bowl openings are round. Some are slightly oval. The thickness of the wood around the openings varies. One bowl has a varnish finish on the outside. One bowl looks like a small chunk of wood around the rim was filled in with a wood filler.
I would return the bowls. But, the cost of shipping the bowls in the original wooden crate would not seem practical.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? They were similar. But, not all bowls had the same finiish.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Extremely poor quality workmanship. One bowl appeared to be repaired. Some of the bowl openings were not round. One of the small bowls was taller than the others. One bowl had a varnish finish. The large bowl has dark vien a third of the way around the side.
How accurate was the sizing? The sizing of the bowls in general was as expected.
Fortunately I didn't listen to the last review and ordered these bowls. I received them yesterday and couldn't have been more pleased. The workmanship was wonderful; no cracks or other defects. We used them right away, after properly seasoning them.
