"LIDDED BOX" Cedar burl and clay.
Earlier this year I began what is becoming a very fruitful project with my friend Frank. I hand him some random birds and he turns his imagination on! 
"LIDDED BOX"  lump of Coal and Clay
It' difficult to see, but Frank has turned a small container into this.

Those are great pieces! I have seen ceramic pots with wooden lids, but never wooden (or coal) pots with ceramic lids. Very nice.

love those and those birds of yours- they have stories to tell!

Very nice collaboration. Who would've thought to chuck up a piece of coal?? Of course those birds will even make a lump of coal look good.

Meredith has suggested she's been bad enough this year to expect me to have a lump of coal wrapped up for her on Christmas morning.... She's been exceptional this year but not exceptionally bad. I'm thinking socks.

Lump of coal came from Michigan; original intent was a joke Christmas gift. Collaborative effort with Dan has been very good for me in that it helps push the creation/imagination engine.. I’m very much looking forward to working additional projects and scheming concepts which push my comfort envelope….

The birds have found their perfect perching places. Well done collaboration.
