Box, by Kathleen McLellan

This stoneware box with decorated lid was made by the artist Kathleen McLellan in 1980.

The slab-built box is glazed with black matt glaze, and is transparent inside. The lid is intricately decorated in a geometric design with black and white glazes and oxides. Four small pools are formed of brown stained glass, and small stones have been worked into some of the decorated areas.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
