One of the hazards of working with a material that you have great affection for is the (more than) occasional inability to part with those remnants of particularly distinctive figuring that are too short for immediate use, but just too pretty to consign to the flames. I live in an area of the States steeped in an early 20th century aesthetic, a milieu of Prairie with Arts & Crafts architecture and decorative arts with Continental and Eastern influences subtly insinuating themselves throughout the warp and weft. An excess of both the material and the culture led me to consider objects that might be usefully expressive of both: Boxes.
