This collection is a response to Iona's visits to the Scottish Islands Mull, Iona, Skye beaches and the beaches close to her home in the Highlands.
"I have completed a collection of small boxes that are functional but also have a sensory dimension in a way that I hope it makes you want to pick them up and look closer. I wanted every box to be different and capture your attention through their unique and individual features; much like my natural curiosity when exploring the beach. Using multiple techniques has enabled me to explore different textures, movements and finishes within my work while also allowing for a variety of interactions with my pieces. Opening the objects will heighten the sense of discovery as the interior houses hidden details and decoration, resembling the magic of exploring a cave. The objects excite the sense of touch as you hold them in your hand; your eyes attracted to different textures and shapes, the lid and base of the object complimenting each other but can also stand-alone."
