Sea Girt Holly Improv #4
This charming little one-of-a-kind handmade cup is turned and carved from the wood of the holly tree. The wood for this cup came from Sea Girt, NJ and was rescued from a lot that was being cleared for building in August of 2021.
This item is an improv experiment that led to an edition of 12 pieces with varying carved patterns on the same form. This piece is decorative and not intended for food use. These cups were bleached to remove any residue or staining of the natural white of this hard-to-find wood.
This improv included dipped application of layers of dye and a gloss acrylic finish on the bottom, blended into a satin lacquer on the top.
Care instructions: Avoid prolonged contact with water. Clean with a lightly damp and clean cloth.
