Makers’ Mark: The 2014 MAD Biennial Opens its Doors to New York’s Top Creatives
Yellow and brown raw silk exterior with yellow silk charmeuse interior. This box was made to house a puzzle box case full of accessories. Magnetic closure and silver ergo label stamped STEVEN & WILLIAM.
William: "This was the first series of boxes we ever made. A case to hold a series of accessories."
Steven: "I used glue to construct most of them…"
William: "…and I came into the room and the fumes were overwhelming…"
Steven: "We both decided in that moment to no longer use glue in our work."
