Box Elder & Elm Upright Box

Box Elder & Elm Upright Box by MatandaBox Elder & Elm
Upright Box

This unusual box comes from a box elder tree that had stood dead in my back yard for five years. During that time, Mother Nature had been creating the artwork that remained hidden until I discovered it after I had the tree cut down. The abstract color patterns are created by a combination of nature’s recycling process and the tree’s chemical reaction to injuries suffered during its lifetime. Using the natural edges gives the sides of this box their distinctive shapes. The piece measures
6″W x 6″D x 8″H.
