Owls and Octopuses on Ice

Epicureanist™, provider of thoughtful, quality wine and libation accessories, unveiled exclusive owl and octopus inspired wine ice buckets at the International Home + Housewares Show. Crafted from hand-carved mango wood and featuring pewter design elements, along with a removable glass ice bucket, Epicureanist's newest product offerings are luxurious yet functional solutions for chilling wine. 

"At Epicureanist we are dedicated to designing products that make entertaining at home simple, sophisticated and luxurious," states India Hynes, Epicureanist's Vice President and Lead Product Designer. "We've been intent on adding animal-inspired design to our wine accessory product offering as it's both on trend and unique. To ensure the new ice buckets were created in the spirit of the Epicureanist brand, we worked through many variations of design and payed close attention to craftsmanship. process led to two unique products that are as functional as they are beautiful."

Each owl and octopus inspired ice bucket is individually crafted using three materials: mango wood, glass and pewter. The process begins by creating a wooden shell to encase a removable glass ice bucket. Each shell is hand carved from a single piece of mango wood, hand-stained and delicately shaped to fit the glass ice bucket. After the mango wood casing is complete, an antique finished, hand ­polished pewter owl or octopus design is meticulously placed and secured to the exotic wood shell. 

Each animal inspired wine ice bucket weighs 8 pounds, has a 2,400 mL capacity, measures 8 inches high by 8 inches long, has an 8.25 inch diameter, and retails for $295. To learn more about the Epicureanist Owl Ice Bucket and the Epicureanist Octopus Ice Bucket, visit KN
