With Marion Boyce

Past in conversation

I've always been incredibly fascinated by objects and things ... I was a curious child ... when I was quite young I had a neighbour called Miss Fisk who lived next door and she had the most beautiful treasure land you've ever seen ... I became fascinated with this pair of scissors, these beautiful silver scissors that were embroidery snips and they were silver bowerbirds and she would tell me stories about bowerbirds ... and strangely enough I think that's what I've become...
