So here are some of our latest glass pieces, a series we call the "Kairos" figures. To us, they represent the Greek concept of Kairos: moments of time pregnant with meaning. They are kiln cast glass figures, often pregnant or with themes of birth and death and mythologically symbolic animals, and they are often contemplative, as with the mirror and the magnifying glass in the two finished pieces. Each figure sits on a wooden base that has a hidden drawer in it, representing the secret, internal nature of kairos moments (and because we're boxmakers, so we couldn't just have empty bases!) The sphinx-like figure is waiting for its base. We have quite a few figures in this series being prepped for their bases.
And a few finished boxes in our normal hodgepodge style: a cast glass octopus on a curly maple box and a woodburned and painted fossil skeleton with a resin skull on a walnut hinged box. These are both for sale!
