Yesterday I made this little box all out of bits and pieces from around the studio. The only things I had to buy were the hinges. The base is an old drawer from hard rubbish, I brought up the floor level, lined it all with MDF and painted it black. I used hardwood framing for the lid and stained it with oil paint to match the drawer. The glass was out of an old op shop frame and to hold it in place I had hardwood off cuts from another creation that fitted perfectly, just needed to be cut to length, glued in and stained 🏻 It just needs a pretty latch now.
This is one of the things I enjoy most in the lead up to an exhibition, coming up with different ways to display my work. ‘daily encounters’ coming soon @fortyfivedownstairs - 1 month ago
