One of Fiji and the Pacific Islands iconic cultural objects, The Tanoa holds a important place in life and society throughout the islands – from the highest strata of chiefly society to a group of friends sitting together under the mango tree, it is around the tanoa (grog bowl) that the families and people of Fiji gather together to talk, decide, relax and laugh.
Hot Glass Fiji’s Glass Tanoas are an elegant fusion of hand blown glass and Fili’s individually hand carved Fiji hard wood. Each tanoa base is individually made to fit its glass bowl, to create a unique Glass Tanoa.
The Glass Tanoas can be made in your colour of choice, We use Fijian Mahogany and you can have the option to have the wood stained black. The Large Tanoa is between 13″ and 14″ in diameter. All our Glass Tanoas are made to order, once we have blown the glass bowl we carve and sand the mahogany to fit the bowl. We then need to dry the wood, re-sand and wax before sending. This process can take up to a month, be assured its worth the wait! We sometimes have a few in stock, if we do we will let you know and adjust the delivery time.
