Mesquite Crotch Bowl with Turquoise

$189.00 Sold Out

This bowl was handcrafted from the part of the mesquite tree where two branches meet, known as a "crotch." The compression of wood fibers and swirling grain in this part of the tree is responsible for the beautiful figure. Cracks in the wood were inlaid with turquoise powder.

Mesquite is renowned for its density and stability, and it withstands repeated use. This bowl was meticulously crafted and will last for generations as a functional piece of art.

Maintenance and care: This bowl was finished with food-safe walnut oil and wax. Clean with mild soap and water, and dry after each use. When the wood begins to look dry, simply apply mineral oil, walnut oil, or any food-grade oil of your choice. If the bowl begins to feel rough, a quick sanding with 600 grit sandpaper will smooth it out. This bowl was handmade and likes to be hand-washed. Please do NOT put it in the dishwasher, microwave, or freezer.
