This striking brutalist piece by Chicago artist Richard Bitterman is as much a sculpture as a functional jewelry box. The highly active and textural surface is created of a patchwork of shapes in brass and chromed steel. It has a cleverly hidden "key" that secures the lid when closed, thus creating a "mystery" for the uninitiated to open. Inside is a padded blue fabric cushion to protect valuables.
