Dear --FNAME--,  
Jack Curran crafts treasure boxes - for jewelry, watches, and other “collections of life”.  His designs aspire to clean, crisp forms, linearity and symmetry. He’s a bit obsessed with precision in fit and construction. Many of the woods he uses are considered exotics – not often seen in traditional furniture and craft. All pieces co-mingle these woods to illuminate color, highlights and contrasts, and are finished in hand-applied oil and wax to accentuate natural tone, warmth and texture - the wood’s “truth”.  He strives to make the simple memorable.

Why treasure boxes?  Jack believes we all possess a collecting gene – expressed by our accumulation of things (for Jack it was once baseball cards) that evoke memories of important experiences and times in our lives.  While some of his treasure boxes are specifically designed for jewelry and watches, many of his designs are open, empty, and lack an obvious use.  That’s intentional.  He wants his clients to decide what “stuff of their lives” his boxes are worthy to hold, and often customizes his designs around their unique collections. He takes great pride in what he puts into his boxes, but most appreciates what his clients put into theirs.

Jack was a shop kid in school and began making furniture for his Mom at age 12. After a long career in marketing consulting he now crafts his treasure boxes, full-time from his home-based shop.
