This is near and dear to me.
What if the physical properties of two items suddenly changed places? If the ice cube became a glass block and the drinking glass was ice?
In Boxed, a simple wooden box is displayed, and opened to reveal a pack of playing cards. The deck is dumped out, and the box tabled. A card is signed and lost in the deck, with the promise that it will appear inside the box. But where's the box?
The wooden box has suddenly become a stack of wooden slats, and the deck is now a hollowed-out pack of cards. Sure enough, inside is the signed card!

Care takes time!
Because each of the parts are hand made and the total run is limited to 100, ever, there may be a 4-6 week turn around time from when you order to when you receive boxed. That said, I will keep you posted as to exactly when it ships.
Also, if you and/or a small group have an interest in booking a Boxed workshop, send an email and I'll fill you in on the price discount, requirements, etc. Thanks!
