Box of Vertigo

Small Box in Acacia and Ebony

Originally begun as a study for a larger, more complex piece, Box of Vertigo quickly took on a life of its own. Cut and carved from a single block of acacia, the outside strives to appear simple and seamless before swinging open the lid to reveal the strikingly three dimensional cavity. Playing with techniques developed during the creation of Third Street, Box of Vertigo pulls the carved-out walls into a twist to create movement and depth in the piece.
