'Contain' Collection from The Enticement of Everyday Objects

About this project

‘Contain’: Through interrogation of pre-owned objects a range of boxes and containers have been adapted and recreated within this collection. The visual aesthetics and history embedded within these items are heightened by the additional handmade elements reviving the item and enticing an audience to explore the piece and question what could be contained inside.
