Throughout history, the box has held a certain fascination. The magic of a special place for treasures is enhanced when the structure itself is a treasured object.
From a child’s small box of trinkets to the riches of a kingdom, the box is a container for the imagination. That fascination has encouraged me to combine different craft processes: glass fusing, lapidary, metal smithing and more. I have created thousands of boxes since I began in 1984. I see no end to the conceivable designs possible for a box. For me it is a passion!
Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, I have been firmly ensconced in the Western North Carolina Mountains for over 20 years. The mountains inspire me! I enjoy creating my unique, one-of-a-kind boxes. I’m so pleased that over the years so many people have found joy from a little box, something I made. I think about that with every box I make. Maybe it will become a treasured object.
All my boxes are designed, and hand crafted, individually , personally by me. Each component within a box is carefully created in my studio. Quality workmanship is a primary goal for me. Every box is a one-of-a-kind, signed piece. Boxes feature handmade fused glass created for that individual box and gemstone. Each one is truly a unique piece!
It’s what I do! Neal Hearn
