The Entomology Collection, Ant Chair

These pieces take inspiration from the entomology collection of traditional museums and nature itself. In an almost anarchic break from traditional display the bugs burst out of their petrified state back to life. The chairs are old pieces, reconditioned and upholstered. As a process this allows a chance to embroider a new history into them and makes each one bespoke. The images are sourced from old natural history journals, adapted and then digitally printed. This piece is finished in
a cotton canvas.       |     Telephone: 07855174306     |      All content owned by Sam Edkins 2013    |     Site Build by Bryony Cork
