The lid of the Ginkgo Leaf Box is handcrafted in a proprietary technique from cast architectural gypsum cement with natural shellac and metallic pigments. The artist uses real leaves to cast unique botanical shapes on each individual lid. Each lid is hand-detailed and finished with four to six layers of metallic pigment.
The round knob is made of metal with a custom patina to match the color of the box. The body of the box is made from bamboo, painted black on the outside and unpainted on the inside to reveal natural bamboo color.
Available in 2 sizes:
Square 6" x 6" - $70
Rectangular 6" x 9" - $80
The lid of each box is available in a variety of colors - see the color chart above. Custom color combinations are available upon request, please call to inquire.
