“Art Deco Inspired” was the brief given to me for this box. The client commissioned this as a present for his wife who is a devout fan of the period. The challenge was to soak up the style, with its geometric shapes, patterns and use of figured woods, and incorporate it into a jewellery box which is small in nature. Crowding the design with lots of shapes would have overpowered the effect so I focused on a classic art deco fan shape for the front and added curved tray dividers on the inside to continue the theme.

The fan is in Sugar Maple and contrasted with a background of European Walnut Burr which showcases the design. The interior edges of the fan are sand shaded to give the illusion of three dimensions.
