Beetle Jar 'Africa'
‘Beetle’ is a collection of jars, thought as handy containers and playful bonbon boxes.
‘Africa’ combines two sorts of wood: Alder at the top and Larch at the bottom. Each piece has a unique grain and natural marks. Contemplate your Beetle jar from different angles, it never looks the exact same.
The warm feel of the wood makes it precious to close and to open. The upper part can be put upside down and serve as a serving bowl or plate.
With its generous inner volume, your Beetle will be a safe place for your jewels, sweets, and other secrets. In the kitchen, dining room or bedroom, we always need a treasure box at hand… Where will you place yours?
Dimensions: height 19cm, diameter 13.5cm
Dimensions are approximate, due to the handmade nature of the materials
Handmade in Europe, by individual craftsmen: hand turned wood (Finland). The materials are then fitted and assembled in our warehouse in North Germany.
Craft challenge: the volume of the jar demands a solid piece of timber of a stately scale. The seasoned wood has to measure at least 25cm in radius in order to accommodate the shape of the jar. Each piece has a unique grain and natural marks of the wood (knots and branches).
