COIN ICON

The COIN ICON research project was inspired by  John Ruskin’s coin collection and social ideas. Following my residency at the Ruskin Pop-Up Museum,  I made new designs for the Penny Press machines at The Millennium Gallery and Weston Park Museum. This is a playful realisation of Ruskin’s  aim to issue a Sheffield penny.

The project also includes Loose Change:, a small of watercolours of  low-value coins.
