USE AND CARE


Bowls are great for salads, fruit, and nuts or as purely decorative pieces.  Like most good things they may require a bit care. 


For bowls used for food:

After using, wash well with warm water, soap and a sponge to remove all food and oils. Rinse and towel dry thoroughly.  As with all wooden kitchenware, avoid soaking. Please do not use in the dishwasher or the micro wave.

 

 

 

WOOD ORIGIN AND PROCESS


Natural wood bowls for special occasions or everyday use add a warm, organic element to the home, kitchen, and table.


I turn my bowls from select logs that I hand pick. These logs come from the Trois Rivières area and are from trees that were felled and destined for fire wood or landfill. It is like giving life back to a tree. Working with these primal cuts of raw wood, I am free to extract the pieces within so their character shines in the finished piece - diamonds in the rough.

 

I finish the bowls with Kunos countertop oil #243 made by Livos. I prefer this finish for many reasons, but mostly because it:

 

 

  • Permanently seals the wood
  • Is certified food safe
  • Is pleasant and safe for me and the end user to work with, in fact, it smells more like food than chemicals
  • Is derived from limonene (oil from citrus rind)
  • Allows the feel of the wood to come through its surface
