Small pit-fired leaf box, made with clay slabs that were cut and fitted together by hand.
The glazed leaf creates in interesting contrast against the box’s smoke-colored body, making it an unusual piece of clay art. The perfect size for rings, and other smaller keepsake items.
Measures approximately 1-1/2″ high, 2-1/2″ wide, and 1-1/2″ deep.
May be ordered in a variety of leaf types. (elm, oak, willow, grass, cottonwood, maple, or click on the product title to request further customization).
This box is slab-built and pit-fired, with the lid decorated with a central Manitoba maple (a.k.a. Box Elder) leaf.
Great for storing treasures, keys, keepsakes, etc., or to place on one’s desk to hold paper clips, etc. This box would also be suitable to use as a votive candle holder.
Every box is unique, with natural coloring that ranges from dark to much lighter depending on the materials used in firing, placement of leaves, plus chance elements in the creative process.
This one measures 4″ (10.16 cm) x 4″ (10.16 cm) x 2.5″ (6.35 cm) deep.
Available in other leaves by special order (eg. Cedar, Elm, Maple, Apple, Willow, Hawthorne, Ash, Wild Rose, or whatever else I find growing around me.)
