First - let me be clear - any of these bowls could be used in the kitchen (obviously), but they are also perfect for the living room, dining room and so forth. Think of them more as the pieces of art that they are than just a vessel to use for salads.
Second - this Black Walnut makes the perfect Pocket Bowl™, with lots of surface space to hold your keys, wallet, etc. - yet still looks beautiful when not in use.
Third - bowl-making is an art form. From dead tree to bowl, it takes approximately two years. I make sure my bowls are priced so that anyone can afford them.
All of our wooden kitchenwares are handmade by a small family-owned business in rural Tennessee. It's a learned tradition, handed down from father to son and spans multiple generations. The vast majority of the pieces come from locally-sourced trees (often from my parents' farm), but every so often a more exotic piece of wood comes along and I get something from it. Most are exclusive to Riley/Land.
