Focus on Teardrops

See what happens when you leave two teardrops on their own together! 😉

After nearly 40 years of making the teardrop box, which has become one of my signature pieces, I decided to start turning them in various sizes, as they look so nice in a grouping this way. Often, if people have not seen the actual work, but just photographs of them, they don’t realize that these are boxes as the join is almost invisible. For this reason I wanted to show one of them open as you see above. The baby one is only just over 1″ in diameter, just big enough to fit a ring snugly inside. The bigger ones range in size between 2.5″ and 3″ in diameter. These are made in African Blackwood each from a single piece.
