  • Care information

    This is a natural wood project. While it is stable as sold, wood reacts to changes in atmosphere, temperature and humidty. A wooden piece may move, warp further or even develop small cracks. For my these are features of the material rather than defects and should be viewed as such. 

    Cleaning wooden items like this can be done with a lightly damp cloth, but should never be soaked in water or have water stagnate inside it. 
    Avoid leaving fruit rot inside the bowl, if you wish to refresh the finish you may apply any neutral oil such as sunflower oil or mineral oil with a cloth.
