Bainbridge Island, WA
Window to the Universe Box

"Window to the Universe Box" is a commissioned cremains box in anticipation of the passing of beloved Great Dane, now in his 10th year. A vintage crystal from a chandelier is the "window" mounted in a ziggarat of rosewood, inlayed into a book-matched and beveled Peruvian walnut top that is framed in angled wenge. Multi-angled legs hold-up a "floating" vessel of figured Iroko (African teak). The vessel has a sealed lid and a tightly fitted maple bottom in which the ashes will be placed and the small oak pegs fore and aft will be lightly tapped in and glued ceremonially with a tribute to a loyal friend an companion.
