I have been dying to get my hands on one of Carson Catlin's Reticulated Boxes since they were released. It seems as though the first colorway released (the clear version) sold out rather quickly, so i am excited to now have my hands on one for myself.

The colorway I received is a "Clutter Gals Edition," which features a neon pink and orange. Looks like sherbert, mmmm! I have to say that the Reticulated Box came in delightful packaging.

Inside my parcel was the box, pictured below, wrapped in tons of packing material. The packaging features Carson's Logo, which looks to be sprayed on the top flap, and a label on the bottom that includes the edition, number, and Catlin's signature. 

Once I opened the packaging, I was pleasantly surprised to see the Reticulated Box wrapped in several layers of felt in order to protect the acrylic. 

At a first glance, the Reticluated Box I received looked to be a neon orange color, so neon that it was actually glowing in my hand! Once i moved towards the window too get a better look at the cut-outs, I noticed a shift in color from orange to pink. See images below.

One face of the box has the C.C. logo on it surrounded by small triangular cuts. The surrounding sides showcase lots of jagged cuts broken up by different sized circle cuts. I personally think the circles were a nice touch, they really add a nice contrast to the sharp and pointy edges that the box is mostly made up of. 

Overall i really love this piece, its so unique and fitting to Carson's signature style. If you would like to get your hands on one of Carson's Reticulated Boxes, you can head over to Sub-Urban Vinyl to purchase the "Slime" Edition, or stick it out for SDCC '13 and grab one of the Red SDCC Exclusives.
