Large Mid Century Hand Carved Monkey Pod Wood Bowl by Christian Sorensen


Stunning piece by Christian Martinus Sorensen, an incredibly talented mid-20th century Hawaiian woodworker.

This mid century hand carved wood bowl is not your usual tourist piece from the islands. It is another outstanding piece of his artisanship (see our other listing) and it's all in the details with his pieces. Textured sides and bottom, this large wood bowl is unique and unlike other pieces carved from monkey pod wood. The gorgeous grain and the natural golden hues of the wood are on display.

The bowl measures 14 1/4" long by 8 1/2" at its widest by 4 1/4" high.

Helpful hint to keep the wood looking nice - wipe with damp cloth, then after drying, condition it with a small amount of butcher block oil.
