Polka Dot Box
At just 1 1/2" cubed, this little clay box is the embodiment of miniature sculpture. Donna McCavitt hand-builds each one out of red clay - no two are ever exactly alike. She uses the sgraffito technique where a colour is painted onto slightly damp clay. A design is then carved through the paint, exposing the terra cotta clay colour below. Mistakes must be turned into "design opportunities' as once the carving starts, there is no turning back!
This box can be a tiny art piece to brighten your day, or used as extraordinary packaging for the gift of jewellery. Comes with an antique button and millefiori bead handle. Always hand-signed by Donna on the bottom.
