From the Inside Flap:

FLAP COPY With a lineage stretching back to the troubles of Pandora, boxes have captivated our curiosity. Who can resist opening a box? No matter how ornate or plain, highly crafted or rustic, ingenious or straightforward, a box is meant to be opened. That's because throughout history, boxes have performed the function of containment and the sheer variety of human invention they record is simply astounding. In New Masters of the Wooden Box, you'll see boxes in an entirely different light as thirty-four contemporary artists put form before function in creating technically challenging and aesthetically stunning works. These boxes are not defined by their intended use-instead, these works of art represent a journey of self-expression that celebrates the joy of craft. To capture what is truly unique about each artist and box, New Masters of the Wooden Box presents the artists' personal inspirations, artistic process, and amazing techniques, along with photographs of their captivating work. New Masters of the Wooden Box serves as an important document to the practice of craft today. Each box represents an effort to bring a new, meaningful, and creative thought into the world through a language of material, form, and technique. And, as you visit each artist and open every box, you will hear a vibrant point of view as to what it means to be human, to be thinking, and to be creative during these modern times.
