There is something really special about the Teak Flat Bowl... holding them in your hand, this dense hardwood has a tactile quality that is hard to describe in a way that justifies it.
Handmade in Indonesia this stunning bowl is hand carved using the natural shape of the teak root for that unique and abstract shape. It stands to reason that no two bowls are alike.
The shapes will be slightly different and the grain colouring of the wood most certainly so.
All trees have roots, but no two trees have the same root system, just as no two people have the same fingerprints.
A unique and gorgeous work of natural art that can either stand alone as an eye-catching display, or be used as a functional piece for fruit or anything else you can think of.
If you like wood objects, the beauty cannot be over-stated. Being a hard wood you can feel the artisan's considerable effort that has gone into this Teak Bowl's creation.
Teak wood contains an oil that helps the wood to be water resistant and also protects the Teak from decay, insects and bacteria. Java(Indonesia) teak is considered by experts to be the best in the world.
Dimensions: Approximately 27 cm wide and over 1Kg in weight.
Please note that this is not a deep bowl as it is carved from the tree root. This is why we call it a 'flat bowl'.
Made in : Indonesia
These bowls are unique so they may differ slightly from the image. However, all are beautiful. You won't be disappointed.
