Artist Christa Smith is a German native who resides in Kentucky. The origins of box making has been documented as far back as the middle ages when monks near Ammergau, Bavaria encouraged woodworkers to use pine to make boxes. Workers near Berchtesgaden produced the first known boxes in 1541. A guild system likely controlled box making and required a two-year apprenticeship before a craftsman earned a master title. Guild members were forbidden to work elsewhere for fear they would divulge the shop's box making techniques. The first of these well made boxes were used as storage containers for food, medicines, sweets, etc. Decorated boxes began to appear during the late 17th century and early 1800's. The mountain areas of Germany/Bavaria, Austria and Switzerland gave us many styles of box painting. Wealthy customers wanted their boxes decorated for both personal use and gift giving. Demand created a box-painting industry.
