Hand wood carving in the Anatolia region of Turkey has been an art form for centuries. This craft survived the rise and fall of Ottoman rule and continues to be passed down from generation to generation today. When we first discovered local craftsmen applying traditional techniques, we were blown away by their time-honoured methods and impeccable attention to detail.
Our substantial antique wooden bowls are hand-hewn from different woods and many feature simple copper or tin hand repairs, adding individual character. The romanticism of these earthy pieces lies in their history as each has an authentic story from making bread to displaying delicious produce. We predict you’ll unearth just as many uses for them today.
