Description

Black-lacquered box (inside and out), with kiln-cast glass blue glass mermaid using the lost wax method. Blue suede lining on base.
Size: Box alone is 8" long, 5" wide, 6" tall. Mermaid rises 3" above lid.

This box is handmade and is one-of-a-kind. The mermaid was hand-sculpted in wax before being cast in glass, and she is one-of-a-kind (no reusable molds were used or made of this figure). She sits on a black-lacquered wood box (shiny black inside and out), so it appears that she is rising out of dark night waters. Her reflection in the black top is just outrageously pretty. The soft blue suede on the inside goes gorgeously with the reflective black of the box. This box was handmade of solid maple, and each side (inside and out) was individually painted with reflective black epoxy lacquer, each side taking a day to dry. The mermaid was cast using the lost wax method in a glass kiln (she fired for 3 days!) in a beautiful soft indigo blue glass. This is truly a unique, breathtaking work of art that looks gorgeous from every angle.

This box shows EVERY fingerprint like crazy- the black surface is so shiny that even a gentle touch leaves a visible fingerprint. It IS easily cleaned with a damp rag or glass cleaner.

    Beachwalker Boxes responded to me just after I made this purchase. They were very open to communications. The box arrived approximately three business days after I placed the order. It was wrapped with care to ensure that it remained intact for the journey from Texas to Alaska. The box is even more beautiful in person! Their attention to detail is truly remarkable. Truly a joy to do business with them!
