With geometric, clean lines and a wild, textured glaze crafted from seaweed ash and sandstone, this Micro Scaffolding Box is designed to protect your most precious micro specimens and treasures.
The Micro Scaffolding box is crafted from reclaimed terracotta paper clay. The base is coated with a wild glaze created from seaweed ash and mussel shells, which has been applied loosely, forming a textured surface of lichen greens and soft browns. 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 lid of the box has been glazed with a textured wild glaze created using sandstone collected from Scotland's Jurassic coastline and recycled eggshells. 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.
