Meta Table: ‘A 20 metre drawing transformed the public space of the Millennium Galleries: depicting a set of cutlery creations inspired by Museum Sheffield metalwork collection. The lift of the Millennium Gallery also had the cutlery design in vinyl around the glass sides along with scratch card silver wallpaper depicting outlines of Sheffield metal hallmarks.  Visitors were invited to scratch their own initials into the hallmarks creating marks of their own.’ /

Sugar Dance Out Of The Ordinary: Spectacular Craft, V&A.  ‘The aim was to liberate the flooring from this weight, and give it a different life.The original inspiration for the work on ‘sugar floors’ came from traditional tea dances; the use of icing sugar is intended to recall these dances as the scent of the sugar permeates the air when disturbed. Florence studied ‘tracking’ in the commercial and industrial flooring sectors where patterns are designed in order to mask everyday wear and tear. In this work the tracking is emphasised by the marks made by feet as they move over the floors, focusing attention on a surface that is often ignored.’ /
