Ebony Vessels


Mpingo (the Kiswahili word for the dark hardwood also known as African black wood or Mozambican ebony) that grows prolifically in Mozambique’s forests. Crafted from Mpingo wood by local artisans living in Mozambique’s vast woodlands, these ebony pieces are both useful and beautiful. The unique lids of these stylish lathe-turned vessels are a chance for the carvers to show off their skills. Differences in tone and slight imperfections confirm the authenticity of materials and craftsmanship of every vessel.
