Small Round Divided Olive Wood Bowl from Kenya


Small 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 small round divided bowl made from natural olive wood. The bowl has two sections to serve snacks and sauces. Wood has a natural grain in light and dark tones. Bowl measures 8" in diameter and 2" in height. 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. 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.
