A sealed wood and glass vitrine filled with copper coins and congealed milk. Although the vitrine is designed to look full, the coins and milk are sandwiched between glass on each of the four sides and the top, around a hollow core. It sits on a base. The materials have reacted with each other and shifted over time to create a striking range of colour, texture and pattern, which was part of the artist’s original intention.
