More on Shadowboxes
One of the things I like most about kitschy atomic furnishings is the shadow box.
I really like the small shadow box that you can see in the Uncle Atom banner, and we also have a cool wire mesh shadow box, but I still haven't found the over-the-top mirrored shadow box of my dreams.
Until I do, I pine away and sigh frequently, collecting photos of ones I run across and bookmarking online ads even when they're too far away to make shipping possible or realistic. I may have to try making one some day, but I'm the first to admit that I'm awful at making angled cuts in pieces of wood and even worse at getting those angles to join together and not have an ugly, gaping mess when I'm done.
Anyway, here's a link to a Flickr group I started for mid century shadow boxes. Feel free to join the other eight of us and add your photos if you have any.
