Ellen Thomas: Milk Series

I like this investigation of value done by Ellen Thomas.

In her own words: "The milk series were a response to an investigation into value, looking at what makes something valuable, with a view to create furniture which embodies longevity. I created 3 pieces of contemporary furniture with imbued value."

I would be interested in seeing what factor of this is deemed valuable. Value is different to each person.. is it the the turn leg as homage to furniture's past? maybe gold gilded? of the embossed look is immediate visual value?

They certainly are beautiful. "created...with imbued value". An excellent idea for further exploration.
