Heirlooms taken from generations by built-in obsolescence. Perhaps we should be thankful. Aren’t we better off without heirlooms, they are just clutter after all? The pharaohs had their house contents buried with them, but then came the grave robbers. Seems we humans like good quality clutter – prized possessions. Here are a few prized possessions we think might suit a modern pharaoh.


Cabinets of Curiosity

We are curious makers of things, things we dream up ourselves. Remarkable, useful, beautiful and original things. Sometimes they are made entirely by hand, sometimes partly by machine, in the future perhaps by robots. May be not robots. Always with an eye for detail and with an element of fun.

If you care to follow this blog and join our journey, we’ll share our successes and (occasional) failures with you and hopefully you’ll become a frequent visitor. Suppose that depends on us keeping you entertained. So let’s get on with the words and pictures.

Work in progress
