This highly grained olive wood bowl is hand-carved in Kenya using rudimentary hand tools. In a gorgeous color, this bowl also features inlaid piece of discarded cow bone, batiked in a mudcloth pattern using traditional methods of was and dye.

Product Features:
  • Hand-carved in Kenya
  • Materials: Olive wood, cow bone
  • Dimensions: 7 inches in diameter x 2.5 inches tall

Story Behind the Art:
Working with more than 100 individual carvers in Machakos, Kenya, Jedando Modern Handicrafts markets products primarily made of wood and bone worldwide. Carving is a tradition in Kenya with the children learning the craft from their parents. Carved by hand using only rudimentary hand tools, olive wood bowls, salad serving sets, and animal-shaped napkin rings take shape from pieces of olive wood, mahogany, and mpingo, or 'African Ebony.' An integral part of the organization's function is to educate the craftspeople on the need for reforestation to enable the products to be available for years to come and offer a sustainable income for generations.

    Nice for mixed nuts however it did crack from washing - not sure if it was hot or cold that made this crack.

    The carving on this bowl is a lot more even than similar pieces; I'd suppose it was at least partly done on a lathe. No problem, though, the zebra trim sets it apart from everyday bowls. Mine only had three sections of striping, but it was beautiful nonetheless! Great for salads and display.

    This beautiful, intricate bowl was purchased initially as a candy bowl. I have had so many compliments on it that it is a decoration now and not a candy bowl. Too exquisite.
