Alan Bennett and Margate were the two inspirations behind this burnt box, and it is part of the series of boxes I've done based on this fabulous re-emerging seaside town.
I used this Alan Bennett quote on the very first burnt box I made to sell, and it seemed apt for this series of Margate boxes... "life is rather like a tin of sardines, we're all of us looking for the key". I wanted to include the Turner Contemporary Gallery and the newly-opened Dreamland into this piece, as these two iconic buildings hold the real key to Margate's regeneration.
All of the Margate-inspired boxes will soon be for sale. If you would like to see my other burnt boxes, have a look at my Etsy shop by clicking on the logo on the top right. Thanks for reading xxxx
