Artist Robert G. McKeownArtist and woodworker Robert G. McKeown created stunning handcrafted boxes and clocks using a combination of exotic hardwoods and colored resigns.
Known for his striking designs and innovation, his technical mastery of the cloisonne-like process of casting resin into wood has never been duplicated. This process, a result of 10 years experimentation, allowed him to transfer his imaginative, abstract designs onto his colorful, intricate boxes and clocks.
