Central American Modern Home Decor Gifts
I sent this bowl and the coordinated sugar bowl/spoon and mortar & pestle to my sister-in-law as a gift and she LOVED all of the items! The blue is a rich and vivid color, and the wood is exceptionally smooth and nice. They will be well-used and well-loved.
I have not seen this palo blanco wood bowl in person, because I bought it as a gift for my mother and had it shipped to her directly. She tells me that the wood grain is lovely. Natural wood and the color blue are two of her favorite things, so I thought this would be to her liking, and she does love it. Where the product description says the artisan "highlights the natural grain of palo blanco," you can believe it. (My father loved making things out of wood, and refinishing wooden antiques to restore the beauty of the woods, so my mother is a good judge of the work, I think.)
These wood spreaders are even better than expected. The wood is a beautiful dark brown color with a lighter grain through it. They are the perfect size and shape. It's hard to believe they're hand carved since they are so smooth! Beautiful craftsmanship!
"Developing a new design is like planning for the birth of a baby. I draw, cut the wood, carve it, sand it and take it apart until I have a finished piece that makes me happy."
