Details

The Peten Wood Artisan Sculptors draw on the natural beauty found in their native Guatemala to craft their beautiful designs. For this appetizer bowl, they select jobillo wood, which is native to the Peten region and distinctive with its dark rings. They carve the bowl in the shape of a jungle leaf that elegantly serves at your next party or get-together.

Hand wash with soap and water. Never use a dishwasher or expose the wood to heat sources or water, as they could cause it to warp. To renew the shine, polish the wood with vegetable oil and a soft cloth.

"Very small, wood was rather plain."

This is NOT an appetizer bowl, unless it is for one person. Entire bowl fits in palm of my hand. Good for holding a few rings or bracelets. Wood was not multicolored like photo, almost entirely tan in color. Well made overall.

"Gift of gratitude"

This piece is for our church pianist. Our church is a Spanish language church with many people from Central America and the Caribbean. This gift, from a Latino artist, will mean so much! A personal touch!

"Unique and very useful spoons"

I love this spoon so much that I bought it twice and might buy more in the future. Unlike other wooden spoons, they are big and deep and serve almost as ladles. I completely recommend them. The artisanship is also amazing.

Best Uses

  • Serving rice or even soup
