All these origami boxes were made by Maggie Begun, my mother. Each box, in & of itself, is a treasure, BUT sometimes she puts things inside. Sometimes she makes Sculpey (polymer clay) buttons, she tumbles rocks, uses her own fused glass designs to decorate the top of each box. These boxes belong to me, lucky me.
My mother used to sell her boxes in The Birmingham Museum of Art & other locally owned businesses around Birmingham…but she has been so busy in her studio, she rarely leaves it to restock the stores that sell them. A bit like me then?
