About The Artisan

Kahero Farm is just about 10 miles north of the Equator in the Great Rift Valley. It was a forest many years ago where people cut down trees for firewood and charcoal.

The new owners of the farm saved the brown olive (olea africana) stumps of trees that were cut down decades earlier and taught the local herdsmen to carve bowls and spoons from the aged wood.

No two bowls are alike. Every bowl is made according to the grain in the wood. The only power tool is a chain saw used to cut the stumps into workable pieces.

After that, the carvers use machetes, chisels, and other homemade tools, some made from old harrow disks.

The bowls are finished with broken glass bottles and sand paper and are then dipped in liquid paraffin, which protects the beauty of the wood.

There is no carving workshop on Kahero Farms. The workshop is where the herdsman sits chipping away while watching the sheep and cattle in the field.
