Zambezi Teak Winding River Serving Spoon
Zambian wood carvers utilize Zambezi teak to craft useful serving utensils with wavy handles reminiscent of a winding river. Teak has a lovely dark tone and intricate grain, so a light coating of oil highlights the natural beauty of these handmade serving pieces.
