Novica Brown Hand Carved Wood Condiment Bowl, 'Noble Shells' (Set of 4)

D+ About our Artist: 'My name is Putu Muliawan and I was born in Bali in 1986, the youngest of five siblings. As a child, I would help my parents around our family farm. My friends describe me as a diligent and honest man. I'm married and have a son. He gives me more spirit to fight and inspires me to work harder so I can give him a better future. My hometown, located on northern coast, is known for weaving palm leaves. I helped my uncle weave table runners, place mats, coasters, bags and many more items. I used my earnings for my school tuition and to buy food. After graduating from high school, I started my own workshop and sold weavings for more than 11 years. Today, woven tableware is not as popular anymore soI decided to begin creating wooden dishes. Together with four assistants, I craft tableware in sono, teak and sawo woods, which are food-safe. They are sanded or simply coated with olive or coconut oil to enhance the natural wood grain.'

Novica Multicolor Hand Made Rain Tree Wood Peg Game, 'Code Breaker'

D+ Game - 1.6" H x 8.0" W x 4.1D+ Pegs (each) - 0.6" H x 0.3D+ About our Artist: 'I'm Waraporn Khamsuk and I was born in 1990 in Northern Thailand. I'm the eldest daughter in the family, and I grew up with the wooden games my father crafted. I'd watch him select wood, dry it naturally and assemble to complete a game. They are challenging and fun — something you’ll never find in computer games. My father founded our family's game workshop. He created brain teasers, interlocking puzzles and wooden board games. My favorites are the wooden games because I grew up with them. They teach me to think, plan and concentrate, and I apply these skills in my everyday life. Along with the wooden games, we now craft wooden tableware. People appreciate the beauty and the uniqueness of the natural wood pattern.'
