Lana Wilson Boxes

We finished the construction of our magic boxes in handbuilding class. This was a very ambitious project based on Lana Wilson's (California) work.

She did a workshop for the Carolina ClayMatters guild several years ago and I am the guardian of some of the smaller pieces that she made during the workshop. One of the pieces was this box, with a secret compartment and a pull out drawer.

My class fell in love with the idea of doing a complex box so we devoted 3 classes to the box construction. They did a great job.

This one is dedicated to a love of trees, by Chris and has an acorn hiding inside the drawer and a lizard in a viewing window at the back.

This one is based on a love of Egyptian things and has sprigs of hieroglyphs and beatles by Flavia.
