L'arrière Saison

Ansó - Huesca - Spain

That was what the legendary musician Charlie Parker used to tell to his students, as it's shown on the documentary of his life.  

In 2016,  I met the artist Neil Saidi while we were both studying in New York.  I wanted to give him one of my works, but instead, I decided to create something that he would be able to use and laugh about it.
This reed-case is made with pre-treated Oak wood. Every element of the case is designed to fit in a single small wood board, and the whole process is only made using a laser cutter and two small hinges.

The case has a wooden humidifier that helps to keep humidity balanced inside the case, and a thin tray with transversal cuts that prevents the reeds from mold.
