“The tea strainer here is by Niamh Minogue. The bases of the pieces have always got a texture, like pin pricks. You’ll never see the bottom, but you’ll know it is there. A lot of Niamh’s works are more exhibition pieces, which bridge the gap between sculpture and function. It’s nice to have objects like these in an environment where people don’t feel intimidated. We get a lot of people who wouldn’t go into a gallery and buy something and feel okay putting a plant in it. I love her stuff too, because you can use it however you want — a planter or a vessel.”
