This commission piece is a special altar box for a person that has become a fairly good friend of mine of the past year. I have done a few pieces for her and honestly, working with this woman is an honor. Her own business is called Black Bird Moon Creations and she makes absolutely lovely wire wrapped jewelry and altar pieces. I love her work!
This piece is an homage to her business and the song that she used to sing to her children when they were wee ones. The box is rather large at around 9″ x 12″. I carved out the weathered texture, added the painted color, then wood burned in the details. The box has metal accents on the corners and the whole item was sealed with a polycrylic sealer. Thank you, Holly for allowing me to do this magnificent piece for you!
