This medium-size Ambrosia Maple bowl is perfect for a bowl of popcorn or salad for two. It's also a beautiful piece that would be perfectly at home in your living room. 

Once-majestic trees eventually fall. Sometimes it's the result of a lightning bolt. Sometimes, old age. Sometimes, bugs. Whatever the reason, once the tree is on the ground, it has potential for a second life - a metamorphosis like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly. Once aged and dried, the natural beauty of the tree is revealed through the grain of the wood. I love that The Riley/Land Collection is known for beautiful pieces of art that you can actually use in your home. 

Bowl-making is an art form. From dead tree to bowl, it takes approximately two years for each one. 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 overwhelming majority of the pieces are locally-sourced from my parents' farm in Tennessee.
