Acclaimed designer Laurene Leon Boym has given Ornamentum her "Nug Box" for the exhibition Up In Smoke; Contemporary Jewelers, Silversmiths and Designers Take On Marijuana.
Originally created for the exhibition "Polished Performances" at the Museum of the City of New York (2017), the "Nug Box" was a contemporary response to a snuff box from the 1800’s in the museum’s collection. The lid, hand-crafted by Boym, bears silver marijuana leaves. Boym’s designs have been exhibited in countless international museums including MOMA NY and the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum. Her designs have won numerous awards, including the coveted National Design Award in 2009.
