Celebrating Women in Craft & Design

Corkey’s Cabinet

A playful interpretation of the traditional collector’s cabinet, including a display drawer with unique hand-le detail and accompanying collector’s box. The piece follows on from a research project entitled A Maker’s Guide to Grief: how does craft provide solace during bereavement? It responds to this theme by providing users with a chance to retain memories through the ritual of collecting objects. These small curiosities are then a catalyst for conversation, encouraging those experiencing bereavement to open up, making their loss a more positive experience.

This piece was awarded Best in Show by Blum at the 2018 Young Furniture Makers Exhibition.
