Shrink Pot #15

Shrink Pot #15

95.00

Birch pot with pine bottom. Pattern created with repeated "C" letter punch. Made using all hand tools and locally-sourced Maine wood. 

6.5" (H) x 4" (W)

Finished with gold acrylic and raw linseed oil.

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.
