Chatted with Christopher Gaston the other day, you may remember his interview earlier this year. Chris is a very talented artist living in Japan, he shared with me his Kuri-Bako, Kuri for his name Chris and Bako for box. These boxes are made to hold his ceramic creations. Meticulously painted to represent what the box will hold they become a piece of art themselves. I like this because it is taking things to the next level, pushing the bounderies where packaging becomes as important as the artwork and can be used rather than thrown away.
Thanks Kuri San!
