"Found Things" by Matthew Hayton
Bower Bird was a postcard project celebrating the art of collecting, curating, and personal artifacts. Each of the 90 contributing artists created a limited edition series of postcards with subjects ranging from historical memorabilia, house plants, fossils and bones, national park attire, ancient books, and more. These objects may not have monetary value, but a rich history of our lives, interests, and personal influences- the collection is a modern day cabinet of curiosities.

About this collection:
A collection of various unrelated found things that have become an impromptu collection housed in an old Victorian card jewelry box from Edinburgh. Old sea glass from some of my favorite walks, natural history items, a tiny key much like the ones my grandma use to keep in a small tin that I played with when I was very young, very old coins (one from 1806 and the other much older) and a victorian magnifying glass.
