It was my absolute pleasure to work on this beautiful Memory Boxes to honour the lives of Edna and John. Such a beautiful collection of keepsakes from around the world, celebrating their lives together
"In 2020, when I was clearing out my parents' home following my father’s death, I kept on finding little objects that spoke of their long and varied lives together, objects that to most onlookers are pretty mundane, but brought memories of earlier times flooding back to me with resounding echoes of my childhood, adolescence and adulthood. Pippa has taken these objects and sympathetically created a wonderful memory box that conjures my Mum and Dad's 70-year life together, their individuality, their tragedies, their triumphs, their love and their separations, brought about by traumatic world events and my father’s job. A little slice of John and Edna lives on in this box and shines out to the generations to come who, I hope, will love it as much as I do. Thank you Pip."

I'm beyond thrilled to share with you my first baby Memory Box commission. It was an absolute joy and privilege to work on, celebrating the birth of baby Clem. I love its delicate simplicity, such a lovely addition to her nursery.
A Day in the Workshop
The double width Memory Box created in collaboration with Armstrong Audio, to be shown at their pop-up with Blackhorse Lane Ateliers at Coal Drop Yard, Kings Cross in December 2019. All the items in this collection were from the Armstrong Audio archive or tools from their workbench.
“Pippa created a keepsake picture frame using tools and parts that our audio engineers use. The picture is beautiful and really helps to reflect the craft and skill that goes into restoring vintage audio equipment. It now has pride of place in our shop and it's proved to be a great way of engaging our customers and sparking a conversation.”

A collection of Mother’s keepsakes where provided for this beautiful commission. I centred the picture around the idea of everyday objects the lady might have used and owned, with the addition of a couple of items to give context and add to the story.
A small Memory Box created as a gift for a friend, who's name was also Webb. One of Captain Webb's most famous quotes finished off the design. One of my smallest Memory Boxes to date, a really lovely little keepsake.
