I have been wanting to make an art cube for a while. I was inspired by Seth Apters that he posted about quite awhile ago now. I think his may have been a collaboration but not sure if my memory is accurate.

I used 5 inch square Clayboard panels to make my cube and laced them together with Irish linen thread. I wasn't planning to have it open but that just seemed like the natural thing to do. I had a few of these 5" squares painted for a while and last weekend when my good friend Kell was over she gifted me with a beautiful card made out of a deep panel with a card closure and that got me thinking about dimensional stuff again. So here is my first attempt at a cube. :)

There will likely be more cubes in my future. :)

Interesting! So it's definitely a cube, not a box or trunk? Or does a cube become a box when it can be opened? Who knows! I like it though :)
