TattooDreams Art Vessel

This one of a kind handmade cherry box measures 8" wide x 8" deep x 19" tall (20.32 cm x 20.32 cm x 48.26 cm). Handmade in our Bloomington, Indiana studio by my husband Jon and rubber stamped by me. There have only been a handful of these one of a kind vessels made so far. I'm proud to present this one to you my TattooDreams collectors.

Many hours went into this box and the detailed purple finial that sits on top. Attached to the finial are a myriad of beads and torn and knotted silk. From this hangs glass and handmade wooden beads. This ephemera only adds to the fun factor on this one of a kind box. Lined on the bottom with black velvet, this artsy box could store dreams or be used as a ceremonial art vessel or the respectful keeper of a loved ones ashes- or nothing at all.
Yours to decide.

This one of a kind vessel beckons to be set upon a mantle or bookshelf and shyly listen to the compliments it will get in your home or office! The price of this vessel is clearly reflected in the fine craftsmanship and detail it holds.

Food for the Soul

Friendship is built, much like a pizza crust. Over time, with attention to details. There's a foundation, there's ingredients and there is flavor. Over the years what makes this pizza good may change, but the foundation has been established. The past two weeks we were on the road doing shows. During this time, we shared meals with friends in their homes, in our art fair booth, in restaurants. The breaking of bread, with friends cannot be compared to anything else. This common act shared, is what keeps us whole, keeps us centered, keeps us nourished from the inside out.

Above is a photo of a magnificent gluten free pizza delivered to us at the Las Olas Art Fair by our dear friend, Michael Bole. Created by Pizza Fusion, you'd never know it was gluten free! What an amazing treat to have this lovingly gifted to us.

Food for the soul for certain!
We are continually blessed with amazing friends-

Thank you Michael and all who 'fed' us in so many ways on this recent trip!
