It’s the basic element of this object. UNI is 100% handmade in Portugal. Wood is a hot material that ensures a full transition from sea to land, keeping this urchin as natural and as alive as possible.
After the 365 holes are carved one by one into de base of the urchin, the spikes are placed sequentially without any mechanical help. The tip of each spike is burned giving it a darker shade - like real sea urchin spikes - ensuring at the same time that it’s image has more volume approaching the aesthetics of this object of the beings that served as inspiration when doing it.
A teak oil layer is applied in the final stage of the manufacturing process. It gives UNI a natural smell of wood, enhances the beauty of the object and gets us as close as possible to the aspect of the living being. At the same time, it protects the hardships of the day, ensuring greater durability.
UNI’s manufacturing method is 100% manual and that makes each of our sea urchins really unique. There are no two alike.
