Here are process photos from beginning to end of making the Tooth shaped box. My friend Dani gave me the tooth keeper boxes a couple years ago. Took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do with them.
Teeth and Wishbones are both strange keepsakes to me. Both are former bits of a living creature. Both have strange rituals behind them. Combining these symbols seemed natural to me.
After sending out a request for wishbones my friend John sent me 23 of them! Next was asking my friend Robot of Robotwoodwerx for help with the final product (since graduation from UH I no longer have access to a wood-shop). This was my first experience out sourcing work on a project. I'm so glad I did because it came out AMAZING!
