Artist: Jim Motto

About the artist: Jim Motto's father-in-law introduced him to woodworking 25 years ago, when Jim rehabbed his former historic house near Lafayette Square in St. Louis. In the late 1980's, Jim changed careers from photographer to woodworker. Today, working from a shop at the Koken Art Factory in south St. Louis Jim designs and builds custom cabinetry and furniture.

"The thing I like about boxes is that they generally sit out in the open, but obviously have something hidden inside. Lately, my boxes always reference something from nature, usually in the form of textures and patterns. They are definitely more decorative than functional - the space I create inside the box is really just an excuse to call them boxes."
