The box took four months to make, I have included the stones because I know reiki fans will like to see what I am actually saying to him.
Honey, I made you an icon as a title was intended to reflect ‘Honey, I shrunk the kids’ rather than meaning anything more significant, although it could be taken in several ways, all of which are applicable.
The style is intended to be early medieval/childlike, which has been a feature of the Sheep in Wolfe’s clothing collection, and so it is a pretty relaxed piece of work.
The box appears to be functional orgonite, although a Gauss meter will be required to verify this. All I can tell you is that I stored it in a room that I previously avoided in the house, and I now spend most of my time there.
This is the first time I have been able to give a gift and not had a massive argument, accusations of madness or otherwise vile behaviour associated with it. Previous problems included having to sneak into people’s workplaces and leaving things under their desks and hiding the fact that I made anything at all.
Considering that I tried to give Wolfe a much bigger present previously, and had a ridiculous number of problems with trying to deliver it, this is particularly remarkable.
The short story Romance meets Death has more about my process if interested, and it is free.
