Artfully carved from a single piece of wild olive wood using simple hand tools, this rustic pair of wooden salad servers showcase the beautiful natural wood-grain, contrasted by handles featuring traditional batik African art. Each serving piece has a twisted design at the base of the handle. The server handles are from highly polished and sanitized cow bone, sourced from natural causes.
Each piece is approximately 10-inches in length, and the handle is painted by hand. Due to the hand carved nature, actual size may vary by up to an inch.
Because these are made by hand using rudimentary tools, no two are identical and variations are to be appreciated and enjoyed by the consumer.
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.
