Box for Aunt Ann

Before Carol's Aunt Ann died, she made a special request for an urn for her ashes. It was to be made in a burl wood with brass fittings. Since she and her husband Dale were avid gardeners, I asked if she would like a floral motif. She choose the Shirley Poppy, her favorite flower.  The wood chosen for the box was madrone, a tree she admired and various veneers made up the poppy design on the front.

This was the first time I tried marquetry and Aunt Ann was pleased with the result. She passed away a few days later and a lovely memorial service was held in her garden.
