Helton, Valerie – Tales of the Briny Deep
Story of the Box
Our boxes can become SO many things and go in so many directions once we start working on them. We wait for the muse of inspiration to come and tell us where to go. A poem, a color, a song, an experience, the state of the world are all things that can be the catalyst that opens us up to begin creating our art. We can make spiritual statements, political statements, environmental statements…..the list goes on and on. With that being said, this year I just wanted to make a box that was fun and magical honoring one of my most favorite places on Earth….the sea. I love the folk stories of the briny sea. Hence, my box this year is called “Tales of the Briny Deep”. I really enjoyed making the box. I hope you will enjoy it too.
