Turkana Bowl | No.17 | Kenya
Our collection of vintage Turkana bowls are one of our favourites. This bowl is part of an extremely special collection which took 8 years to curate. Each bowl has been hand-carved from indigenous wood by women of the Turkana community in Kenya. Turkana bowls are known for their distinctive and unique shapes as well as their beautiful carving details, showcasing the artisanal wood working skills of the Turkana people.
Authentic, vintage wooden bowls from global communities are increasingly rare to curate, making them perfect investment pieces. Each bowl would have been used to prepare and serve food or used for storage for many years, which in turn has created wonderful patina, wear and ageing of the wood. The bowls have been lovingly repaired with traditional techniques in keeping with their original authenticity. We love the artisanal restoration as it makes each bowl more special and unique to their final home.
Style as a decorative sculptural piece or use as a soulful storage anywhere in the home.
