ARTIST INFORMATION CONTACT INFORMATION

Michael Hamilton and Dee Roberts create fine wood boxes and accessories.

Dee and I look at our boxes as small pieces of furniture that can be held in the hand and displays our attention to detail and love of the wonderful variety found in wood. The boxes in their present form came about, as much good design does, from a slow evolution and refinement of design.
