These one-of-a-kind hand-carved bowls, made from the Mexican white wood ‘Copal’ are heartbreakingly beautiful. They are sold in a set of 3 which includes one of each size bowl: Small, Medium, Large. There is no dye or varnish used on these bowls, they are food safe and as seen in the following photos, can be used for food such as sauces and nuts, or more creatively can be used to hold flowers- they’d make for lovely center pieces for a country wedding. Since they are hand-carved, no two are alike, therefore sizes and shapes vary slightly, but we think this is what makes them even more special. I have tested these bowls out thoroughly (I use them daily for something because they are so pretty!) and this wood ‘Copal’ though off-white in color and unstained, does not seem to retain color from bright colored food or sauces. They must be hand-washed (not soaked) with a mild dish soap and hand dried.
Material: Copal wood
Color: White/off white
Approximate Bowl Sizes: small bowl 2.5in wide x 2in deep, med bowl 3 x 2.5, large bowl 4.5 x 2.5
*they are hand made therefore sizes,shapes and direction of deer's may head vary but that's what gives the bowls their handmade, one of a kind charm

He creates the lovely deer bowl sets, and also makes spice bowls, chocolate molinillos, and the scissor tongs which are only available for now on our wholesale (contact us for more info). His creations specifically accommodate the kitchen, huge cutting boards out of solid chunks of Fresno (they weigh a ton!) rolling pins, ladles, plates, knifes and anything else you might imagine needing in the kitchen. Woods he typically uses are Fresno, Copal and Corazon de Guaje. His HUGE hands are worth a thousand words, engraved with burns, lines, cuts and age, he’s been woodworking for more than 60 years.
