Marblewood is native to Northeastern South America and gets its name from the marble-like patterns in the wood. Marblewood is a dense wood, and will sometimes develop small fractures as it is worked, as can be seen in this bowl.
This Marblewood bowl measures approximately across by deep. The finish on this bowl is a friction polish, and is not considered safe for direct contact with unwrapped foods. Periodic polishing with a furniture polish is necessary to maintain the finish.
