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.
