At times my wife will pick up a piece I am working on she will describe the first thing that comes to mind. In this case she exclaimed that it felt like a bone. Smooth, hard as can be, and yet bone-like. Large, dangerous animal bone. I have to admit, the texture on this one is cold and extremely smooth, glass like almost. Like a dinosaur bone that has been petrified and polished. Hard, smooth, dangerous.
Every piece we offer is unique. No two are alike. Sometimes pieces lay in wait until I feel like it speaks to me and tells me what it wants to be. This one clearly wanted to be finely sanded, polished and let its natural beauty shine out.
Our South American Strawberry Guava is harvested directly from the source, and handcrafted in our shop. Guava normally grows as a bush, but the hardest, heaviest, and straightest pieces come from South America.
