Decided to chop of one of the corners of the cube so that the form does not just sit at a right angle to the surface. This also gives me more faces to work with. By the having the form sit on its corner also lifts the entire object, giving a sense of height.
Since I am working with a transparent material in mind, the interior space of the cube needs to be made use of. A straight forward method is to have another solid paced in there, however I will have to make sure that it would not end up looking like a container.
