Product Details

This olive wood salt pot is carved from very old tree stumps on the Kahero Farm in Kenya's Rift Valley. Olive wood is extremely hard and durable, and valued in Kenya. For this reason, the wood is harvested from sustainably sourced trees that no longer bear fruit. The handmade dish features an oblong shape and shows a totally unique design in the natural grains of the wood. Comes with spoon. 

Product Features: 

  • Due to the hand carved nature, variances in size and wood-grain are to be expected and appreciated for their one-of-a-kind nature
  • Handcrafted of natural wood pieces
  • Measures approximately 2.5 to 3 inches in diameter; size and exact styles will vary due to the handmade nature

About the Maker:

These olive wood salt pots are carved from very old tree stumps on the Kahero Farm in Kenya's Rift Valley. The Kahero Farm is just about 10 miles north of the Equator in the Great Rift Valley. It was a forest many years ago where people cut down trees for firewood and charcoal. The new owners of the farm saved the brown olive (Olea Africana) stumps of trees that were cut down decades earlier and taught the local herdsmen to carve bowls and spoons from the aged wood. No two bowls are alike. Every bowl is made according to the grain in the wood. The only power tool involved is a chain saw used to cut the stumps into workable pieces. After that, the carvers use machetes, chisels, and other homemade tools, some made from old harrow disks. The bowls are finished with broken glass bottles and sand paper and are then dipped in liquid paraffin, which protects the beauty of the wood.
