Nicasio Woodworks

Hand carved bowls

These bowls from camphor wood offer a light, but distinctive set of patterns.

Each sculpted bowl is unique.  Each is hand carved, requiring many hours of detailed work to capture the distinctive features of each piece of wood.  It is the features in the wood that dictate the size and shape of each bowl, thus, sizes  vary, typically ranging from 12 to 40 inches long.  The inventory of available bowls changes from month to month.  If you see something you like or would like to order something custom made feel free to contact us.   You are also welcome to stop by and look at pieces, call and schedule a time.  Prices generally range from $80 - $1,000, with larger bowls priced higher.
