Mantel Pieces

May 2022

The mantelpiece is a location in the house overflowing with memories, treasures and personality. From dusty framed photos to spikey plants, creepy Troll dolls to childhood Pokémon books, our rooms are filled with an abundance of ‘things’. The pieces upon the mantel often act as a way of defining us as individuals and could be seen as extensions of our bodies. By parading the wearable mantel with prized possessions, the series aims to celebrate and showcase our beloved objects that others rarely ever get to see.
