Shrink Pot #10

Shrink Pot #10


Hand carved birch shrink pot with maple lid. 

5.5" (H) x 3" (W)

Finished with milk paint, gold acrylic, and sealed with linseed oil. Splattered paint finish inside.

A freshly cut section of a limb is hollowed out, forming a tube. A notch is cut along the inside of one end, and a dry piece of wood is fit loosely into the notch.

 While the exterior dries, it shrinks around the bottom, forming a tighter fit. After drying, a lid is then fit onto the final form and painted or decorated with chip carving.
