Studio Collections No 1

I've been a collector for as long as I can remember and recently found the perfect letterpress type tray to display my tiniest treasures in my new home studio.  I love looking at it and thought I'd share some of the photos.
Some of the handmade wooden characters are relics from the days when I used to make 3d illustrations.

I had fun juxtaposing objects together and particularly like the way the woman on the playing card is covering her modesty in front of the sailor on the cigarette box!

I've had some of these objects since I was a child, in fact the tiny toby jug was bought from a village fete when I was about 10 years old for all of 3 pence!


  1. What a fun display! That's so fantastic that you've kept all of these little treasures. Makes me want to start a collection of tiny objects ;)

  2. WOW I love this! I want to look at EVERY little thing in that display... very cool. I agree with Julissa, this makes me want to do the same! :)
