Created in partnership with Live Edge Detroit and Holland Bowl Mill, our Elliott wood bowl is made from reclaimed urban wood. Rather than letting felled trees in the Detroit area be mulched or sent to a landfill, Live Edge Detroit reclaims the wood and repurposes it into usable sustainable lumber. Holland Bowl Mill hand-turns each bowl in its small Michigan workshop. Each bowl is finished with Bee’s Oil—a blend of beeswax and mineral oil that preserves the wood’s beauty and strength.
We discovered Live Edge Detroit through our Urban Wood Project partnership with the USDA Forest Service. Founded in 2016 by father-daughter duo Mike and Jenny Barger, Live Edge Detroit reclaims trees in the Detroit area that are cut down due to disease or storm damage and repurposes them into sustainable wood for furniture and decor.
