Large Round Olive Wood Bowl from Kenya


Large Round Divided Olive Wood Bowl from Kenya.

Wood carvers of Kenya are known for carving olive wood. Olive wood is a warm durable wood with beautiful natural grain. Kenyan carvers use richly grained and sustainably sourced wild olive wood, a species indigenous to East Africa, for their products. They make a variety of products in different sizes to efficiently use all the wood from a tree.

This is a large round bowl made from natural olive wood. Wood has a natural grain in light and dark tones. Bowl measures 10" in diameter and 4" in height. This bowl is perfect for serving salad for two people. To clean, hand wash in warm soapy water, rinse and dry. Rub wood lightly with mineral or olive oil to maintain the shine and smooth texture. Also, check small and medium size olive wood bowls to pair with this bowl. This is a handcrafted item, so product may vary slightly in color and craft from the images.

This product is made by wood carving artisans in rural Kenya.
