Spice window, 1971

Sculpture in wood, spices, glass and metal.
The work consists of five individual windows mounted side by side in a wooden
frame, each hinged allowing both sides to be seen. The upper surface of each
frame is fitted with a metal handle which allows the frames to be opened for
re-filling or to smell the spices. Each of the five frames contains an assortment
of spices in varied layers, although in some cases a whole window is filled only
with one spice. The resulting effect is reminiscent of the strata of the earth, or
of overlapping landscapes extending into the distance.
