My own original concept and design, this stacked books ring box I first created as a graduation from university gift for my daughter who has since reached her goal of becoming a school teacher. The book box with its open book removable lid was met with awe and happiness by its receiver. The little box is made up of 4 upright books that form the bottom cube shape and the lid is an open book with its pages exposed. To the aged looking open pages, I have painted faux text on to resemble an antique book. Each books spine and cover is a different colour.
I hand form and hand paint each book ring box upon receiving your order. I strive to create each stacked books ring holder box as closely to my original creation as possible. However, just by the very nature of a hand crafted artisan piece, each will have its own slight uniqueness in textures and finish, no 2 will ever be exact duplicates of my first one or subsequent ones. This is what helps make this piece such a special gift.
You may request personalization on the blue and deep yellow toned covers that make up each side of the book box. Please do so by emailing me after purchasing. Please keep the verses between 1-6 words as it is a slightly small space. I hand letter the personalizing text in a simple print like script. Be prepared to approve an image of the finished text on your book box before I ship, within 3 days of me emailing it to you, or I will need to ship it on the 4th day with no approval received back, thank you!
Each stacked books ring box I begin as soon as I receive your order and it will be complete within 7 business days. These pieces do take some time to sculpt and to finish as there is quite a bit of work and care to detail in them. They are sealed with a semi satin non yellowing acrylic clear coat varnish, inside and out.
CARE of your PIECE: Clay pieces though durable can break, like any ceramic or clay item, if dropped on a hard surface, especially if it lands on a corner of the piece. To clean, never soak in cleaning solutions nor water. Lightly dust off with a soft clean cloth tip or brush off with a soft clean paint brush or makeup type brush, if you have one. Food or candy cannot be stored in these boxes, nor can candles or incense be burned in them. They are only for storing hard non organic or perishable objects like jewelry. They also are not for kids at all.
