Lightning In a Box

Ron Smith

Working on the art box has been a labor of love. After many years working with metal it's great to work in wood, softer, gentler, alive and colorful.  The drawing combines my early training in graphic design with a slight nod to 60's hot rod art.  People have been curious as to how the logo was burned into the wood box, so without giving away any voodoo secrets, the drawing provides a visual hint. Let's call it lightning in a box. The project is a great idea.  I'm excited to follow the progress as the Art Box travels from hand to hand.
