Sea Box

Small pillbox by Mullanium.

I bought this small pillbox at the Smithsonian Craft Show last weekend. Like virtually everything in that exhibition, it is beautifully made. The appeal for me of this item is its Cornell-Smith-like shadow box construction. The sea-horse, shell, and grains of “sand” are mobile under the glass window. And the little parade of turtles at the corner makes me smile. The inside, which I’m not going to show you, has its secret charm as well.

You can find the work of Jim and Tori Mullan at Mullanium.
