Sputnik Sea Urchin Ornament #2




Woods Used:
Walnut and Cherry
Shell Details:
Sputnik Sea Urchin Shell
5″ overall length; shell diameter 2″; cherry icicle finial length 2-1/2″

This unusual ornament is crafted from a Sputnik Sea Urchin shell, which features distinctive horn-like protrusions and intricate wavy patterns.

The top and bottom sections of the ornament are sized to fit the openings of each unique shell and hand-turned on a wood lathe.  The bottom icicle finial is turned from cherry.  This wood takes takes detail very well and will develop a rich dark tone with age.  The top, and the icicle base, are turned from walnut.  The ornament is finished with multiple coats of a protective spray clear enamel, which adds strength to the shell.

The ornament will be shipped to you by USPS, Priority Mail Flat Rate, and insured.  The ornament will be double boxed, packed in its own storage box inside the Flat Rate box.  Although the ornament needs to be handled with care (don’t drop it on the floor or step on it!), it is surprisingly durable and will become a treasured addition to your Christmas tree.
