Over the last year, we have acquired several artefacts that discuss how the impact of the pandemic and wider socio-political subjects have inspired the creation of some remarkable works of art, craft and design that reflect these times. Sarah Rothwell, Senior Curator of Modern & Contemporary Design, concludes our mini-series with a unique work of sculptural jewellery acquired for the nation. Created from something unusual, it’s probably more at home on our kitchen counters. This piece draws attention to sustainable living, the impact consumer consumption has had on the planet, and on our emotional wellbeing during this notable period in history.
