The Overflow Wine Caddy
Continuing the theme, what would happen if you put bottles of wine 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 (wine bottles) it displaces the liquid forcing it to flow over and out of the melting edges.
This project was my first attempt at the melting wood effect.
