Earthly Treasures is inspired by postcards treasured by Charlotte Hickman’s grandmother, as well as the minerals collection at the The Natural History Museum, London. The work is a series of interiors – including cushions, chair covers and blankets – reflecting the concept of time. The textile artist was influenced by these beautiful collections of artefacts: prized possessions accumulated over time. Hickman chose to focus on the positive connotations of time, exploring its value to human beings.
