Wired Box

 

This box is one I made a few years ago, seemingly quite different from my usual work, but in fact a natural deviation from some of the boxes such as Spiderman and even the Golfer's dream 2 which lies on its side.

The box itself contrasts African blackwood in polished rings with a finely textured cone section on each side. The ends and central ring are of a rich cocobolo, with one of the ends removable, revealing a hollow centre. The inside of this cocobolo removable 'top' is of mother of pearl.

The box is delicately balanced on two guitar wires which are taughtly strung between the plexiglas ends, suspended over a polished poplar burl base. The box can be moved freely along the wires.
