Abstract Earth, Sky, Ocean Bentwood Box
James Michels

Stunning abstract bentwood box with fully carved lid                      
Master bentwood box maker and artist James Michels has brought his signature style to new heights with his latests creations. With this stunning large bentwood box he has incorporated the three elements of the earth, sky and ocean in abstract form. This outstanding box showcases James's deep fine line carving, hand stipling on both the body and the lid, as well as his signature in-verso continuity painting along the bottom of the box and on the inside lid and base - unique!
