Measuring eight by eight at the widest points, this heart-shaped dish is hand-carved from a richly blackened block of repurposed oak. A beautifully functional objet d’art, you can use it to hold trinkets or morsels. Or to skew it more art, less objet, you can even mount it on the wall. Treat yourself with it by all means, but giftwise, it’s a gorgeous way to carve out a place in a special someone’s heart. (Sorry, we had to.)
Father-daughter duo Fred Masaro and Alexis Dodd are in the business of transforming reclaimed antique wood into the sleekest charcuterie boards, serving trays, bowls, pizza paddles, and hand-carved spoons we’ve ever seen. By embracing the wood’s knots, marks, and imperfections, they’re able to give a second life to what would otherwise be discarded material. Sustainable, durable, and meticulously crafted, these pieces will be your dinner-party fixtures and kitchen-counter mainstays.
