Lily’s Artworks – EmBellish

EmBellish explored what we consider valuable.

My theory was (and is) that what is considered rare or difficult to obtain, and has little practical use,

as in gold, diamonds, and jewellery, has a high value placed on it.

Items such as stainless hex nuts, marbles, and buttons etc which are in abundant supply and are very useful, are therefore of low value.

EmBellish sought to make them as appealing as their higher valued cousins.
