Our ebonized bowls are made using a natural wood-darkening process that allows a the natural grain to show through. The ebonizing process reacts with the tannins in the wood to create rich dark brown and black colors. These bowls are most frequently made from oak wood. Oak is a sought after hardwood known for being strong, heavy and straight-grained.
Our bowls are sustainably sourced, upcycled, and handcrafted in New England. Spencer Peterman’s nesting bowls range in size from 10” to 21”, and are a classic round shape with a clean edge and are 100% food safe.
Apply mineral oil once a month to maintain the natural beauty of the wood, EXCEPT to products with Driftwood, White Pearl, and Sea Glass finishes. These bowls are made with an acrylic food safe finish and should not be oiled.
The mineral oil has a beeswax base that adds beauty and protection from everyday wear and tear. Beeswax conditioners help prevent wood from drying out as well as from absorbing too much moisture.
Prolonged exposure to water can cause damage; please do not submerge in water or place in the dishwasher.
Common mistakes include letting old fruit and vegetables mold at the bottom of a bowl (this may stain) and putting a bowl/board in the oven.
