Story Behind the Art:
The bone is "batiked" which is an age old art process used in Africa. The patterns are applied by placing wax on the white bone and dipping the bone into a dark brown/black dye, resulting in the beautiful African mud cloth designs.
Olive wood pots have been hand-carved by artisans in African, turning stumps from no longer producing olive wood trees into beautiful little pots. The workers dig up the stumps in field preparation, and earn extra income by carving them into repurposed bowls with a small serving spoon.
