November begins

I ordered five new basswood boxes, same size and shape as the one I burned the octopus on.  I’m working up some designs for these.  Some ideas are kind of a story told on the box, such as I did with the red-riding hood box I unfortunately didn’t get a picture of.  Some will be more one shot.  Its fun to see how I can work with the box shape and make that a critical part of the design.

The octopus box and some other items, including the Boaraffe,  are currently on display at American Artworks Gallery in Forest Park, IL.  This is a new storefront gallery that just opened last weekend.
