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.

Liquid Wood: Padauk
Surrounding wood: Hard Maple
Signature: Burned into wood with burning pen
Inspired by Bonsoir Paris’ – Duremen Series http://bonsoirparis.fr/object-design/duramen-series/

Wood purchase from House of Hardwood LA – houseofhardwoodla

That is incredible! How’d you do that?! I live in the heart of wine country, Washington State, USA. I have got to figure this out!
