The Urchin

The Urchin

DESCRIPTION

A sea urchin is a small marine animal in the Echinodermata phylum family that is spherical in shape. They are typically but not exclusively, covered with spines. There are some 950 species of sea urchins and they live in all oceans around the world. The name "urchin" is an old word for hedgehog, which sea urchins resemble and have been called sea hedgehogs in the past.

The Urchin is inspired by these beautiful marine animals. Cubic right angle weave is artfully combined with peyote to form a free standing self supporting box. Twinkling embellished ribbons of prismatic right angle weave radiate from the center to form the symmetrical folds of the urchin. The sparkling rhinestone at the center forms the centerpiece of the lid.

The Urchin can easily be made into a taller vessel by adding tiers.
