There is something really special about Teak Bowls carved from roots that would otherwise rot over the next few decades. 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 particular shape the artisan is seeking. 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.
Hence, it is 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 of Teak Bowls 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.

These bowls are unique so they may differ slightly from the images. However, all are beautiful. You won't be disappointed.
