circa 1979

Small but vivid and masterful work by San Francisco Bay artisan Robert McKeown (1931-1989). A graduate of the California College of Arts and Crafts, McKeown was a color theorist and woodworker who won acclaim for his innovative resin inlays on a range of utilitarian objects. The present box, with a groove for coil stamps, is constructed of walnut, mahogany, and birch. The top, which looks like a framed artwork, features a brightly colored California sunset composed of resin and wood inlays, a process that took days to complete, as each band of resin had to dry before the next was applied. In excellent original condition, with full markings and date (1979) on bottom.
