"Beauty Released"

April 2015

Here's what I did with my April "holiday". lol To be able to cut loose and create something new was a really restorative break from the production work of the preceding 6 months. It was especially rewarding since it turned out stunningly beautiful! Click on the photo to view my little YouTube video of this box.

This 8-sided box is about 9" tall and 8" diameter. It has a felt-lined interior and bottom and a snugly fitting lid. The gemstone-like surface effect is accomplished by applying 8 to 10 layers of paint which is finished with a good coating of semi-gloss lacquer.

It took almost the entire month of April 2015 to create and is made of my usual materials: corrugated cardboard, heavy card, paper, glue, acrylic paint, synthetic felt and spray-lacquer.

"Beauty Released" can be yours for €450.00 (with free international shipping). Contact rawn@rawnmade.com for details.

"Beauty Constrained"

May 2015

And here's what I did with my May "holiday". lol In contrast with "Beauty Released", this piece explores the linear nature of the 8-sided form very starkly. It's constructed as a cube within a cube, "constrained" as it were. And, instead of being 8-sided, the interior is a cube. Click on the photo to view my little YouTube video of this box.

This 8-sided box is about 10" tall and 8" diameter. It has a felt-lined bottom and a slightly warped lid.

It took about 3 weeks of May 2015 to create and is made of my usual materials: corrugated cardboard, heavy card, paper, glue, acrylic paint, synthetic felt and spray-lacquer.

"Beauty Constrained" can be yours for €250.00 (with free international shipping). Contact rawn@rawnmade.com for details.

"Tatarish"

Custom Made to Order

I created this box as a gift for the Tatar parents of a friend who were visiting. The traditional Tatar designs were cut from thick card (a process that took about 18 hours), applied to the box and then given several coats of paint to achieve the gem-like appearance.

This 8-sided box is about 3.5" tall and 5" diameter. It has a felt-lined interior and felt-bottomed feet.

It took about 3 weeks to create the original and is made of my usual materials: corrugated cardboard, heavy card, paper, glue, acrylic paint, synthetic felt and spray-lacquer.

A custom made version of "Tatarish" can be yours for €350.00 (with free international shipping). Allow 4-6 weeks before shipping. Contact rawn@rawnmade.com for details.
