Materials: Blow Molded Glass & Turned Maple

"When I took up beekeeping this year I became captivated by the incredible complexities and ingenuity of the Honey Bee. As a tribute to my girls I wanted to design a honey-centric product that seemed a bit more considered than some bear or cartoon hive."

"The Hive Honey Set is informed by the natural geometry that makes up wax honey comb. Each individual cell is a rhombic decahedron which is formed by a combination of optimal heat and pressure. Interestingly, the bee's control this optimal temperature with beats of their wings!

Available in clear and frosted glass (**Sorry no pictures yet of the clear**)

Set includes:
- Hive Jar
- Capped Cell Lid
- Bee's Butt Dipper

The hive honey set is slated for an October Release in stores."

Designer: Andie Olive
