Jean McGrew has been interested in textiles since her grandmother taught her to embroider when she was a little girl. Her talents in weaving include wall hangings, liturgical textiles, and these boxes!
The structure of the box comes from strips of bamboo dowels Jean weaves in among the yarn. This little lidded box is made of deep purple yarn, dyed corn kernels, and bamboo. The lid simply lifts up, allowing you to store small items like keys, rings, a bracelet, etc.
Approximately 4 in. square and 1½ in. high (2 in. with corn).
Artist statement included.
