You’ve heard of “the old ball and chain,” but you haven’t seen anything quite like this!
Wang’s mysteriously multifaceted bandsaw box holds secrets, as both the method of opening the box and its contents will only be known by the owner and the artist. Unfortunately, the temptation to get to the contents means you may have to “ruin” the artwork, or maybe it’s a collaboration with the maker. You be the judge.
Janine Wang is an artist who works professionally in the design and production of modern goods, while keeping one foot firmly rooted in woodturning and the hand-crafted world, believing that we need both in good design. She has exhibited and done residencies widely, including at the Center for Art in Wood, and at the Arrowmont School of Craft, American Association of Woodturners, Hunterdon Art Museum, State Museum of Pennsylvania, and many more. She holds a BArch from the Cooper Union, and MA in Furniture Design from the Rhode Island Design. She currently lives in Philadelphia, where she also works as part-time faculty in the Fine Woodworking Department at Bucks County Community College.
Your bid not only benefits the Center but the artist as well, proceeds of the winning bid are split 50/50.
