Diamond Inlay Box
My designs directly reference natural forms on the scale of individual branches and buds as well as larger ecological phenomena such as tidal movements.
Each of these memento boxes is hand-crafted and carved from a single block of wood. The common origin of the material and the preservation of its form serve as reminders of its previous life as a tree. The diamond design is inlaid into the lid in walnut using a segmented patterning technique often used in wood turning. The interior, wrapped with textured carving, provides a welcoming enclosure for treasured possessions.
