Using details in unexpected ways is always very satisfying. A bowel filled with a group of antique bocce` balls, a butchers scale, flowers arranged in a soup tureen are a few. I especially love to incorporate items that no longer are used in our everyday life such as stirrup cups, biscuit boxes, sugar shakers and white creamery jug ware. Items such as these where commonly used in the 18th and 19th century. Out of place and out of time brings attention to the detail in an unexpected nature.
