Precious Objects

About this project

Precious Objects is a new series of work using and celebrating found objects. Having worked in museums at the start of my career, I find old objects fascinating, inspiring and precious. Many of the precious objects are tools or functional objects which already have integral narratives embedded within them; the makers of the tools, the makers who used them, those who kept, sold and bought them. See this work on madebyhandonline and at Lustre 3-5 Nov
