andy,

I believe your finished piece is evidence of your creativity, problem solving, understanding of materials and tools, colors forms and shapes. You have integrated different forms visual movement and color to produce a place of honor for the watches.

My wife gave me a bunch of watches in a case. simple black manufactured, and it holds all the watches I never wear.

I believe this will hold watches that are worn . LOL

I am in awe of the master!

Andy;

As always, Great Job! There's a lot of folks out there trying to copy you, but you're boxes still have that certain "Je ne sais pas quoi".
May sound a little strange coming from a Japanese / American, but couldn't think how else to say it :)

Thanks everyone, very kind of you to say so.
@Daiku- Good, thats what I like to hear. A subtle difference is all it takes to be unigue.
I resist the temptation to copy the last one, so the next one will let me say something new.
I find it harder each time, but I have new designs in mind that will keep me interested for a while yet.
