Robert Tinney’s Momento Box

One of a kind, hand-made, Brazilian marbled paper evokes the feeling of light playing on pebbles under the water. Uncle Bob spent his last years fishing for shrimp with his beloved Ginny in Florida. Short on space, I made her this small box to house Bob’s personal effects.
