Story Behind the Art:

Rootwork items are carved from a species of Chinese Fircalled Shan Mu, which grows abundantly in the mountains of CentralChina. Rootwork raw materials come from stumps left by loggingoperations, the removal of which allows faster re-growth of newlyplanted seedlings. Each gnarled stump is then transformed byskilled artisans into the gorgeous pieces.

  • Nice bowl, smaller than advertised
    Verified Purchase

    I like the bowl. It has a lot of character a nice look. It seems of good quality, and will make a nice addition as a decorative bowl. Beware, however, that the dimensions specified in the product details are grossly off. The bowl is much smaller than stated. In fact, there is a product sticker on the bottom of the bowl stating 16” diameter by 3” tall, which is a long ways off the stated 18” x 17” x 5.5”. The practical size of the bowl’s inner area is 3” at the deepest, which consists of a few inch wide area, then tapers up to the sides. The average depth of the bowl is approximately 1.5-2.0” if measured by volume. If size is a concern, as it was for my intended use of the bowl, then beware. On the bowl itself, I would give it 5 stars. On matching the product description, I would give it 1 start. Overall, I had to rate it in the middle of these. I’ve documented the specifics of the bowl I received with some photos.

  • One of a kind
    Verified Purchase

    A unique addition to the kitchen island. Got the extra large bowl to hold fruit. Works well. Everyone comments (positively) on the bowl first thing when they walk into the kitchen. It adds a rich touch.

  • Perfect as a photo prop!
    Verified Purchase

    I was looking for a natural prop for my newborn photography business and stumbled on this. It is perfect! And I can use it as a fabulous fruit bowl when it's not being used. LOVE it! :)

  • Very poor quality, does not match the picture
    Verified Purchase

    The picture of is a deep, relatively thin-walled bowl, but this is really the opposite. It is too shallow to use as a salad-bowl, which is what I bought it for; I think it might have made a reasonable candy-dish. However, the craftsmanship was also very poor - the finish was not rubbed in and my fingers were a little oily from handling the bowl; it was not evenly sanded and still had saw-marks on it. I did not think this was a usable product at all, I was very disappointed. To Overstock's credit, they took an immediate return and under the circumstances, waived the shipping costs and returned 100% of my money.

  • beautiful!
    Verified Purchase

    Have been looking at rustic bowls like this for awhile. This one is so unusual and interesting it is a conversation piece alone. But also very useful and makes a salad a centerpiece on a table.

  • Nice but not remotely the same as photo!
    Verified Purchase

    This bowl was a nice quality.. but it's not even remotely LIKE the one in the photo, which is what I thought I was getting. I think if the bowls are THIS VARIED, Overstock should put several photos online so you have an IDEA of what you might be getting. I wanted to put a photo of the bowl I got (its nice just not what I wanted) but I am unable to do it here.

  • Beautiful center peice.

    Beautiful center peice and a lovely color. Each is unique... the one I received is shallow but overall an extra large bowl.

  • Great Display Bowl
    Verified Purchase

    It is a beautiful piece. Will not be used for food, even though it is graded as food safe. Too pretty to use for food and seems more appropriate as a display piece.

  • Lovely Root

    Mine is beautiful and makes a lovely natural centerpiece. I filled it with polished stones. It has a sheen to it, but not too shiny. No weird smell. Mine is not quite as deep as the one in the photo, but not too flat, either.

    I am really pleased with the quality of the bowl. The size is as advertised with the smallest diameter being the advertised diameter. The actual shape I received was more square than round though.

  • Q:

    "In the photo, the bowl looks like salad dressing could get caught in the crease. Is this correct?

The bowl was beautiful and I would like to purchase it if I was certain there would be no problem with nooks and crannies inside."

      Hello pariscat01, This unique bowl is intended for serving food or as a decorative conversation piece.
