Gardiner Museum showcased Obsession: Sir William Van Horne’s Japanese Ceramics a huge collection of ceramics that required 29 custom steel exhibition cases. We worked closely with Katheryne and Micah, evolving subtle changes in the design including levellor feet, cross bracing and a system of assembly that allowed the plexiglass to be installed easily. We also added a hand rubbed finish. It was a great collaboration. Plexi by others.
