Details

Nature inspires Diego Mendoza as he reclaims roots from the coffee tree, letting the wood itself dictate the shape of each carving. Transformed into a set of two ladles, the wood's grain enhances each one. The irregular forms seem shaped by the xocomil winds that blow across Lake Atitlan.

"Beautiful!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Such beautiful workmanship. Just love it and will display this piece in my kitchen. I will use it for a beautiful decoration but would make a cute salt bowl. Make sure you read the measurements as this is a small item. Love the different types of wood used. I cant wait to see more items from this artisan.

I love the smooth, gleaming wood and the innovative design. A must for those who cherish religious decor. Arrived fairly quickly too, considering it came all the way from Guatemala. Very well wrapped. Great purchase.
