A simply decorated shrinkpot, carved by hand from locally-sourced white birch wood.



This pared-down-yet-eye-catching shrinkpot reminds us of the old-timey candy, strawberry shoelace licorice.


This shrink pot was carved using hand tools from a piece of freshly cut white birch. When the wood was still green and wet, we loosely fitted the bottom which became enclosed tightly when the wood dried. No nails or glue were used in the construction of this canister. The inside surface of the pot has tool marks from the act of hollowing and shaping the inside by hand. The outside surface of the pot is chipcarved with a ridged texture, and accented with non-toxic matte plum purple paint. The unpainted interior surface of the shrinkpot has been left unfinished.



5 1/8" at the tallest by 2 1/2" at the widest

This shrinkpot is not waterproof. You will receive the exact shrink pot as in the photos.
