Modern White Oak Jewelry Box

Erin Hanley Fine Furniture
of Burlington, VT

This White Oak box has a bleached maple lid.  The lid has been textured and etched with a white wash and filled with a white wax.  Discernible beneath the etching are fragments of a poem, creating a palimpsest effect.  Both the box and removable sliding drawer are lined in leather.

The incised writing on the top includes fragments of a poem by Wendell Berry about a long love.   I wanted the sense of quiet understanding in that poem to be reflected in this piece somehow.
