Objects chosen by Pauline.
What do you want to do when you grow up? What kind of job requires you to dress as a kiwi - or was it a kiwi fruit? When were pockets invented? And what can you do with left over bits and pieces after making something?
These are just some of the questions that emerged in conversation today, as we considered Pauline's choice of objects - on first impression quite different, but actually with more in common than you might think. Both connected to the physical act of working with materials.
