This box was inspired by diatoms - microscopic single celled algae that have beautifully exquisite cell walls made from silica. It seemed appropriate to make it into a box with a lift off lid as these algae split into their two 'valves' or 'shells' as part of their reproductive cycles!

It is 4" diameter (100mm) . I turned the box out of english sycamore and then added the radiating pattern and texture to the lid with a pyrogragh. It was then darkened further by airbrushing with black acrylic ink. The intricate inner disc is made from hallmarked silver by the jeweller Sarah Parker-Eaton.

This is the box you will receive, and pieces will be shipped within two days of your purchase.

Thanks for looking!
