The bowls are processed to a fine and smooth finish. Each bowl is taken in turn, and according to its natural flaws, patterns and grains, is cut and shaped into the different product.

    By doing this, DNA Studio adds its own unique imprint to the original carving. The studio recycles all breakages into functional home-ware products. Unique designs are burnt into the wood with a selection of specific tools, colour is added to some, after which the bowls are oiled, burnished or sealed into a durable usable product.
