Maker's statement

Portugal is the worlds primary destination for sardine tinning, and had also hung on to the tradition of printing graphics directly on to the tins. This and the array of types and brands available made for a fantastic body of colours and graphics, which once grouped and housed in a simple MDF cabinet, made for a delightful and useful set of small drawers.
