2011 150cm x 44cm x 44cm What do you do when you are fed up with all of your hoarded treasures being hidden away in drawers and boxes? Well if you are me you build a cabinet to display them in. I have long had a fascination with the 16th century “Cabinet of Curiosity”; a term originally used to describe a room full of objects collected by the wealthy. Cabinets contained everything from the realms of natural history, religion, science and medicine alongside objects purporting to be unicorn horn and mermaid scales. I love this eclectic way of displaying objects and started work on my own “Box of Delights”. The cabinet itself is made of foam board, card and paper mache overlayed with stitched and quilted fabric. It contains found, altered and made objects and is embellished with machine embroidered leaves, vines, charms, beads, butterflies and hundreds of tiny bottles.
