Each medium cup is handmade of stainless steel with a bamboo plywood base and will not tarnish over time. It will last forever so you will not have to replace it, but if you decided you did not want it you could easily recycle it. The steel I use is made from about 60% recycled materials to start. The base is coated in a food grade .
The metal is cut with tin snips, polished, and then heated for color. The metal is secured with aluminum rivets and stainless steel wood screws. Care is taken to make sure there are no burs or sharp edges. The dimensions of the pencil cups are approximately 5 inches tall, and 4 inches in diameter. Due to the process of making each one separately there will be slight variations in the color, and size.
When you order a medium cup please indicate if you would like the silver or color finish. If you would like more than one let me know and I will be happy to make a reserved listing for you. I am also happy to create a pattern for you if there is something special you would like to add to your piece.
