'Precious objects desire special homes. Artbox is 40+ invited artists taking a functional object and transforming it into an art object that speaks to them and their practice. A desired object to be envied by all.

Made at Tacit, crafted and finished by hand, double primed matt black, these lidded boxes provide an opportunity to transform an object associated with the storage of the most precious of objects into its own precious object.

Paint the lid? All the external sides? All the external sides and the inside? Object(s) placed inside the box? All of the above?
