A case display of work by second-year Foundation Degree students at Rycotewood Furniture Centre inspired by artefacts or functional 'types' of object in the galleries. The theme of 'containing' encourages us to consider not just the everyday importance of useful containers, for food or possessions, but also the containment of more transient commodities such as light or emotions. The students have used a range of materials, including concrete, metal and leather as well as reclaimed timber in their work, requiring the development of a variety of new processes and skills.
