Curiosities is the name of my Final Major Project. I studied the cabinets in the Pitt Rivers and the Ashmolean and was captivated by the ancient objects. I became interested in finding out more about the pieces, in particular the ‘Sympathetic Magic’ cabinet fascinated me, I decided to travel to Norfolk to trace back the bone Fish. Once I was there I began my own collection from the sea, which fed into my work. In this project I have worked with a wide range of materials: fabric, plastic, wood, resin and ceramic. I hope to keep adding and developing my cabinet of curiosities over time.
