'Sphere' Charred Cup in Natural Walnut Wood
Playfully elegant, these tiny spherical-shaped cups are milled, cut, and turned entirely by hand from scrap ends of larger woodworking projects. Multifunctional, you can use them either as sweet micro-storage containers or sipping glasses for whiskey and such.
Featuring a charred interior inspired by the traditional, time-honored technique of distilleries who char the inside of their barrels before aging, as well as the Japanese practice 'shou sugi ban', designed to help preserve the wood and protect it from weathering and moisture retention.
Finished with De JONG's in-house wood butter, a truly natural, petroleum byproduct-free, food-safe blend of organic oils and waxes.
Also available in 'Geode'.
