This bowl is 31" long and almost 9" high. It is carved from Solomon Islands kerosene wood (cordia subcordata) and has been decorated with extensive Mother of Pearl shell inlay. Shaped like a open shell and an inviting focal point for your table.
For the mother of pearl inlay, the artist cuts a piece of shell to fit the space, then cuts it into tiny pieces, files each one to create the pattern, and then puts each individual piece in place using custom putty.
31"L x 17"W x 8.75"H
