Exercise 5.2: Person-Space-Context

In this exercise I will take a few household objects, with varying size, shape, material and purpose, that should be able to contain or define a space. I will then examine each object carefully and thoroughly and write a list of the physical and material attributes, whilst trying to be as objective as possible using words that describe the physical qualities rather than words that attach emotion.

My objects are; a spirit measure, a candle holder, a teapot and a belly basket.
