Chris comes from Sumba and makes our gorgeous wooden bowls & plates. After the bowls have been worked out with the lathe, he carefully draws a pattern on each. They are all turn out differently, straight from his creative mind. The carvings are entirely done by hand. The secret of the special look of our bowls is, that they are burned and whitewashed after the carving is complete. This procedure emphasizes the beautiful textures and gives the elegant grey patina. It almost seems like stone, but it is still wood! Each bowl and plate is an unique masterpiece.
