SEA URCHIN BOX
Twenty years ago, in the warmth of the Ionian Sea, I first encountered the spent shells of Paracentrotus lividus, the purple sea urchin. Here was the modern descendent of the fossilised urchins, discovered amongst the flint strewn chalk downlands of my youth. I was blown away by the exquisite fivefold symmetry and pattern left by its spiny defence.
This box, with its tenfold symmetry is our homage to the lowly urchin’s sensual, fecund, domed beauty.
You may not need a dining-table or an office at the moment but, as shameless sprats to catch mackerels, we hope that living with these pieces just might prompt you to remember us in the future.
