Pocket by Zuzu Mengham

Mengham has made a modern interpretation of a ‘wall pocket’, which became a popular object for the home from the 1800s. Usually, these formed three main shapes: the cornucopia, baluster and face shape. These objects inspire a question of wall space that we don’t generally exercise in modern homes beyond picture hanging and shelves. The question is: where should it hang, and how does that dictate its function and one’s relationship to one’s space? Historically, the wall pocket was used for holding eating utensils, sewing sundries and general household tools – whilst later they were more popularly used for purely decorative purposes, often holding flowers. In making this piece, Mengham invites the owner to question and celebrate their relationship to this object in their home.
