Artist’s Note
“Initially inspired by the checkered floors found in historic French buildings, I have used the exterior of this box as a canvas for the creation of geometric patterns. Although the patterns seem to be static, they take on different forms depending on how the top of the box is placed on the bottom. The shape of the tray is also triangular when seen separately from the box, as it lies on its side, mimicking the triangles on the exterior as well as the small diamond shaped finial on the tray pull.”

Artist Statement
“I have been working with box forms for many years, not exclusively, but I find myself always returning down that path, drawn to the mystery inherent in them. I constantly search for the perfect form, proportions and materials with which to create each piece as well as textures and patterns with which to embellish them. This makes the creative voyage one without an end, as each achievement draws me to the next. The encouraging aspect - the growth - means that I can look back at my earliest work from time to time, seeing in those designs the seeds of the present ones.”
