The pineapple

Did you know that in the Eighteenth Century pineapples were available to rent for the evening? A stark change from the £1 versions you find in Tescos. I love the history and optimism of pineapple cultivation in Britain through the ages so decided to celebrate with the construction of two sculptural pineapples. Suitably gold plated. 

These can be seen at Gallerie Handwork from 17th June 2016 as part of the 'Festive Summer' exhibition.
