The Story of Olive Wood
The luxuriant olive groves capping the surrounding hills of Jerusalem are among the Holy Land's symbols of eternity, a poetic presence in biblical lore. Since their planting 2,000 years ago during Roman rule, the trees were farmed and harvested for food, oil and materials for construction and the crafts.
Millennium later, olive trees grown in the Holy Land remain as they were: ancestral gifts to residents who employ them for the same ancient purposes. Regarded as a precious and irreplaceable legacy, the slow-growth trees are preserved in perpetuity.
Without threat to the trees' natural lifetimes, only dispensable limbs are removed for craft work.
For that reason, olive wood from Jerusalem is a rarity in popular demand. Prime wood is air dried for a minimum of three months before being precision cut into smaller sections. These are exposed to air for three additional weeks, oven-cured for six days, then allowed to mature six months longer in open air.
The lengthy process enhances the wood's color and grain... the flowing strands of light and dark that make each olive wood carving an absolutely unique collectible. In the hands of the master craftsmen of Jerusalem, the durable but responsive wood from which ornaments are shaped becomes a visible piece of history.
