This stacking box was available for sale in a showing of the work of ten ceramists from the upper midwest region at the studio and showroom of potter Warren MacKenzie in Stillwater, Minnesota, on 25 July 2006. The event was arranged for participants in an Arts and Crafts conference held 21-25 June 2006 and organized by Lisa Koenigsberg in conjunction with the University of Minnesota. Curator Patricia Kane, a conference participant, was able to meet the artists and view and handle their work.
