Item # 29314
No longer available

A great chef requires great tools. Likewise, a great host requires serving solutions to match. Our Cimbiri Wood Bowls transition easily between both worlds, making them a beautiful and international answer to your kitchen and entertaining needs.

Hand-carved in rich cimbiri wood by artisan Mbanda in his studio in Mozambique. The unique cradle-like shape of the bowls makes them a natural choice for holding spices, kosher salt, or other ingredients when cooking. Each is a unique work of art, polished to a lustrous patina to accentuate the honey-colored woodgrain.

Bowls measure approximately 2.5" T x 4" L x 3.25" W (6.4 x 10.2 x 8.2 cm). Handmade in and fair-trade imported from Mozambique.

Artisan: Mbanda

Artisan Mbanda

Working with native sandalwood, Mozambique artisan Mbanda comes from a proud tradition of woodcarving stretching back generations. His distinctive designs have drawn the attention of major design magazines, creating enough of a market for his products that he now employs four other artisans in his workshop.

His method of utilizing natural textures combined with burnished surfaces sets his woodwork apart and makes his style difficult to duplicate. In addition to his many popular vases and bowls, Mbanda's most successful designs feature carved sandalwood figures with pointed faces and streaming hair.

Being able to make a good living creating art on the world stage has been an inspiration for the next generation of woodcarvers in Mozambique. When not in school, his own son is learning the craft at his father's side, and he is already showing promise as a crafter in his own right.
