Set in silver, copper, brass or steel, the fragments of graphics selected from the tins are always the key inspiration in how the designs take shape. One of-a-kind & limited edition pieces that are colourful and fun.

Tea Caddy Mutoscope.
Photographer: Maria Whetman.
A short filmic 'experience' of a walk around Portland Square location in Plymouth, Devon. It includes images found during research into the area as well as many of my photographs of the area and close-ups of materials and surfaces relating to the place now, in the past and people who lived there. The experience encapsulates walks around this historical area now subsumed by the campus of the University, as well as research and speculation, emotions and observation.
