Well, after working on and towards this moment it's time to share the official announcement for my box show. If you click on this LINK , you'll be taken to the website of the Urban Ranch General Store. From there you'll be able to get the full details. The Urban Ranch General Store is the design studio of Durette Candito. She, along with Suzanne Silk, will have her work displayed at the show as well. Durette used to have her Interior Design studio on Main Street but those of you who are local will recall how a blast at the Nevada Power facility across from her devastated her studio along with the Attic and an Opportunity Village building. Her new location features all of her fantastic hardware and finds from around the world. She is a well known interior designer as well and I've been privileged to do some work for her in the past.
Also included are some boxes that incorporate a carved and gilded top along with exotic wood.

Wood has always been a fascination to me. The textures, colors, and grain patterns seem to be endless. My earliest recollections of being attracted to it was in doctors offices where they had wood veneered doors. To this day I see animals, mysterious figures, and all kinds of designs in the wood.
