The artist, Grace Gunning, says:
I found old machines from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s that had been used in metal fabrication and taught myself how to form a box from metal. Someone looked at one of my early creations and said, “it looks like a reliquary”. I’ve been learning how to make Reliquary Boxes ever since the late 1990’s. They are my favorite things to make. I hope you can feel that when you hold one in your hands.
This box is approximately 6 1/4 x 5 x 1 1/2 "
