Wedding Diorama in Wooden Box – a very personal and meticulously detailed collaboration

“I was captivated when I came across Bonkers Clutterbucks at an art fair, and in particular the delicate and whimsical hot air balloons and dioramas. I commissioned Kate to help create a very special gift for a close friend, and over several weeks she took every suggestion and addition/change with patience and good humour! The attention to detail and care with which she helped create this piece was unparalleled in my experience. It was very much a collaboration, and I felt able to offer ideas and suggestions as the process went along, while at the same time receiving updates and photographs of how it was progressing. I couldn’t have been more delighted with the finished result, and it was received by my friend with delight who said it was the most touching and affecting gift she had ever received. I’m so grateful to Kate, the whole experience was a pleasure. Thank you.”    Fiona Sinnott, August 2018
