Inspired by folk history, utilitarian simplicity and the limitations of functionality, artist Jeremiah creates cigar box guitars that are both visual works and acoustic instruments. The body of each guitar is an authentic tax stamped cigar box scavenged from various tobacco shops, and the materials used to create each piece include metalwork, woodwork, or they were gathered from local junk shops, hardware stores and alleys.
