My sister Susan had never seen Coupeville, so I took her for a wander down Main Street to peek in the shops. At Jan McGregor Studios we discovered a little brocade box, handcrafted in Japan by a small family owned business. Evidently one bolt of brocade fabric yields only fifteen boxes.
This is no ordinary box. For as you lift the lid it begins to twist . . . and grow. . .
. . . until it has fully blossomed and the deep recesses of its interior exposed.
An amazing treasure of engineering genius. And Susan’s gift – to me!
