Vera had a vision of the village's voice, 2012

This project came to mind in a solid form - text, concept, and contents all together. Vera was my grandmother on my mother's side. When I was a child my mother would tell me stories of Grandma Vera's clairvoyance. She died of Alzheimer's when I was in junior high. I made this piece to honor her. 

Found and repurposed box, handmade kozo, pig suede, found objects. 
Also I'd like to thank Greg Tuomi for his help on sanding the box and removing its fixtures; it was my first time using wood and removing the original finish for my own purposes.
