Raewyn Walsh - jewellery box last day

Raewyn Walsh is in the Masterworks jewllery box this month.  She taken a nice step from her dark stacked objects into colour.  She is still investigating the silver tea service and intervening with its reading and function, but the subtle introduction of colour adds an exciting new aspect. Here is how Raewyn describes the work:

I am still interested in the vessel, especially the silver tea service, and this time I have set my sights on the vessel accoutrements; those parts that are added on but which also define the use and function of said vessel. Here the teapot spout is recast as a brooch and spoon handles become pendants that are long enough to be held.
