The Overflow Beer Caddy
What would happen if you put a 6 pack of beer into a bucket filled with paint? This was the question behind the design of the liquid wood styled beer holster. I wanted to create a purposeful/ practical piece that represents a frozen depiction of an unstoppable and free flowing action. The combination of a melting shell and liquid filled interior, once a third party is introduced (beer bottles) it displaces the liquid forcing it to flow over and out of the melting edges.
I decided to make the puddle of wood that forms under the bottle opener a bucket to catch the bottle caps that fall bellow, flowing into a functional shape.
Liquid Wood: Padauk
Surrounding Wood: Zebra Wood
Signature: Burned in with wood burning pen
Inspired by Bonsoir Paris’ – Duremen Series http://bonsoirparis.fr/object-design/duramen-series/
