Many of my favourite pieces are birthed directly from the customer's needs. Recently, I had the pleasure of building a keepsake box for an unborn baby, due in August this year.
The baby's name is secret. All I have are the initials WRF. This, to me, adds another degree of sentiment. Something private and something sacred.
It offered a pleasant opportunity to get the carving chisels out and set to work on some letters. Letters that stand for a new human yet to come into this world.
This box was made to store all the bits that go along with a newborn. Birth certificate, hospital bracelet, a lock of hair...
Something to keep forever.
