Office folk assemblage which essentially adorns a biro.  Biro decorated with scraps of suits and shirts, pom poms, beads made out of shredder paper, cardboard, and correction fluid amongst others.

This work dates back to the very beginning of the Office Folk enquiry. Initially I was imagining the office worker/s to be weekend morris enthusiasts who brought this to work with them.  I'm still quite fond of these pieces but I felt at the time that I needed to move beyond the somewhat frilly aesthetic found here.
