Alhambra Collectors Box


My collectors boxes are somewhat of a holdover from my wholesaling days, when all my work was sold through galleries. They're beautiful little boxes whose feel and precision is best experienced in person. The tops are end grain laminations, crosscuts off a complex  laminated block , painstakingly glued up  component by component. They're great for small items like jewelry or paper clips. They're also great gifts for collectors of boxes.

 M.C. Escher was inspired to his life's work by this pattern from Spain's Alhambra Cathedral. See how the tessellation is based on a diagonal gridwork? End grain holly, nogal and leopardwood in a case of bubinga, approx. 2.5 x 3.5 x 1.7
