Two years after I settled in California, I was selling this "Crescent Box' in local craft shows. It is purely and timelessly functional with an easy-on-the-eyes shape. This box enabled me to gain entry into gallery showing. Hawaiian Koa.
The First Box, 1982 The year we arrived from Mexico to California, I set up a studio in the garage. I was determined to become a professional furniture designer and submitted a chair design for a competition. Meanwhile I began to make small items to sell in local craft shows. This is the first box from the studio, made of found walnut on our street. About 4" long and $2.00 each.
Architectural Box, 1985. When the Post Modern movement was in force, I produced these small symmetrical boxes with architectural motives. About 3" high.
Small boxes, 1995. Shown at the ACC Craft shows and exhibited in Craft Galleries.
Ancient Ruins, 1992 Many of the boxes appeared to look like ruins from ancient civilizations.
Ancient Ruin Box, 2002 Bleached Wenge. By this time, I had begun to reduce production and to concentrate more on more challenging objects and to withdraw from popular Craft Shows.
