Handcrafted using tzalam wood, a tropical wood native to the Yucatan region, the Balam bowl is a prime example of Ayres' beautiful utilitarian design. Each bowl is entirely unique due to variations in natural color and wood grain. The Balam bowl is food safe and can be used at the dining table or to hold odds and ends in any room.
Measurements: 5.2" x 3.5"
Care: Wash with water and soap and dry immediately. Being a tropical wood, these pieces should be moisturized to avoid dryness and cracking, caused by climate change in their natural environment. You can use linseed oil, coconut oil or beeswax. It's normal that spots can appear when food or liquids come in contact with these pieces, cracks due to climate change, and opacity due to use.
*All items sold by Vía Raíz are handmade. Therefore they may have small "imperfections" or slight variations of color and design between each product—we think that is part of the beauty of having something made with care by individual artisans. Our website photos are a close representation of this piece, but may not be identical to the one you receive.
