Each bowl is carved and chiseled by hand and then sealed with fire and natural oils! Charring the outter layers of the wood does more than just seal it. Fire accentuates the checks and chisel marks that are unique to each bowl. The pattern and color of each piece varries, as the pattern follows the natural grain of the wood. And the color is determined by the heat of the wood during the Sugi Ban process. The dimensions are approximately 19-22 inches long, 1 1/2 – 2 1/2 inches deep, and 5-6 inches wide. These bowls are PERFECT for candle making. They make beautiful centerpieces and will add a warm, rustic feel to any room in your home.
