Our RootWorks® wood bowls, platters, and other decorative items are hand-carved from Chinese Fir that grows abundantly in the mountains of Central China. Each RootWorks® piece is made from the stumps left behind by logging operations. Enrico transforms what is considered waste by the logging companies into works of functional art. Removing the stumps also allows for more rapid reforestation. All stumps are transported to carving communities where the stumps are cleaned, graded and then masterfully carved, sanded and lacquered. Rootworks bowls are “flat cut,” which eliminates the possibility of the wood splitting over time. Add a beautiful Rootworks bowl, platter, wine rack, urn or vase to your home or table today!
