Ancestor Box


  • Medium: red cedar
  • Size: 24 × 17 × 17 inches
  • Reference Code: W130702


Corey Moraes studied the steaming and bending of wood for boxes with David Boxley and this was his first solo project. The box was created ten years ago as a present for his mother to fulfill her lifelong dream to own a bentwood box. There were boxes in the house when she was a small child but these were gone very early in life and it was something that she always wanted in her home. The box is titled “Ancestor Box” to recognize his family.
