This beautiful, highly grained olive wood bowl from Global Crafts is carved by hand in Kenya using only rudimentary hand tools. Carving is a tradition in Kenya with the children learning the craft from their parents. This rustic bowl is approximately 9 inches in diameter by 2.75 inches tall. Due to the handcarved nature of the bowl, the size may vary up to 1″ (9.5″-10″ Diameter, 3″-4″ Tall.) This piece truly is one of a kind and is uniquely crafted. It makes an ideal wedding, housewarming, birthday or Christmas gift. Jedando Modern Handicrafts markets African handicrafts primarily made of wood and bone worldwide. 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. While wood carving provides the major income for many in the Machakos area, other craftspeople earn a living by further enhancing the products including painting the napkin rings and carving discarded animal bone for the handles of salad serving sets.
