Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Melty Stuff focuses on locally sourced, urban lumber, paired with a one of a kind stone, which consists of gypsum powder, pigment, wood, sawdust, rocks, and whatever was swept up on my shop floor (who the hell knows what's encapsulated in your piece!).
With thoughtfully crafted templates and molds, the end result of these materials looks soft, with unnatural movements and clean lines, but the material is heavy, extremely durable, and in nature, the opposite of soft. The end result is taking something natural, tediously remove the organic feel, then spit shine the earthly nature back into it. Was the shape already in there this whole time?
Wood: It is not recommended to serve food on items that have been stained. The Deep Space colorway has a heavy, black stain soaked into it and is sealed, do not use as a cutting board and if used with food, do not eat with sharp utensils directly off the board. The Sand colorway is nude and completely food safe, so do whatever you want to this thing... Once the sealent fades away and after heavy use, make sure to lightly sand out any knife marks and add a fresh coat of oil/wax. Wipe both clean with soapy water and dry immediately.
