Since classical times olive wood has been one of the most prized mediums for carving; because when fashioned by an artisan this hardwood provides a smooth, silky finish. These are prize winning olive wood products that we have at La Tienda. They are personal creations of Angel, from the Province of Navarra.
Angel selects just the right block of aged olive wood. He never cuts corners by using laminates, which are prone to splitting.
He fashions the aged olive wood by cutting, hollowing, turning, and sanding the ancient wood. He sets aside the final product for at least two months so that he can be sure that the wood in the hand fashioned product is completely dry. Finally he applies a natural sunflower coating. Angel guarantees all of his hand carved creations for five years.
The large serving bowl is approximately 8.5 inches in diameter and 3 inches deep. The small individual salad bowls are each about 5 inches in diameter and 1.75 inches deep.
