Yogi Box

 Wood box, carved and painted. Yogi boxes came after a weekly yoga class that I started taking about six months ago.  I was so inspired by the way the instructor closes the class, and a big part of it is the tonal quality of her voice, she always states “there is nothing to add, nothing to substract, you are perfect”.  What a mantra for a pseudo perturbed Cuban.  I came home and created the little yogi. Soon I was giving him/her/it away to friends and placing it on top of small boxes with inspirational quotes. So, in honor of my yoga instructor, the illustrious Rhonda, I bring you, the Yogi Box.  Each box is hand carved, you will notice that all lines are composed of dots, I am still currently teaching myself how to use the tool.  It has a nasty habit of getting a tad bit hot and my small digits take quick offense. The figures are created in clay, baked, glossed and placed on the box after the box has been stained.  Depending on the size of the piece this can take anywhere from 5 hours to a day or two.
