Royal Cornwall Museum collection box
I have been commissioned to make a donations box for the Royal Cornwall Museum. I went there today and took photos of their most popular exhibits.
It’s a real mix of stuff from around the world and it’s going to be hard to come up with an idea that ties all these different things together and represents the museum in an original and entertaining way.
