With geometric, clean lines and a wild, textured glaze crafted from harvested seaweed ash, The Kelp Box series is inspired by surfing and beachcombing trips to the west coast of Scotland and designed to protect your most precious specimens.
The Kelp Box Series is crafted from reclaimed terracotta paper clay and coated with a wild glaze created from seaweed ash and mussel shells. The glaze has been applied loosely, forming a textured surface of lichen greens and soft browns, which contrasts the geometric form of each Kelp Box. The seaweed used was collected from a remote beach in the west of Scotland and the mussel shells are a byproduct from our kitchen and orignally harvested from Loch Fyne. The boxes are glazed with a shifting metallic glaze on the interior, which illuminates the objects protected within and denotes their value.
A little extra note on the seaweed harvest - only enough seaweed to create 200mls of glaze was collected, and no fixed or living seaweed was taken.
