Dovetail

 
 

Dovetail

Dovetail is a fidget toy inspired by the dovetail joint. Now most often seen in high end furniture, the technique itself is ancient. The earliest known examples being discovered in ancient Egypt. I wanted to highlight and celebrate this elegant joint as something that is beautiful in itself. The materials and color-ways highlight the interaction between the two halves of the joint and play off one another through transparency, texture and color.

Materials: Pine sap resin.
