James Michels Mini Bentboxes

Lattimer Gallery has been carrying the work of carver and bentwood box-maker, James Michels, for over a decade. His wood-working skills, clean carving, and experience with steam-bending have resulted in his status as a popular and respected Northwest Coast artist in the Vancouver art market.

James is also known for creating the world's smallest bentwood boxes. Measuring 3/4" x 1/2" x 1/2" and made with both red and yellow cedar, these boxes are made using traditional methods, and are very time-consuming to create. While we try to have them in stock all of the time, they sell quickly. Lattimer Gallery can, however, order these extraordinary and amusing sculptures from James. Prices range from $100.00-$200.00 CAD.
