In early September, the organisers of Best of Britannia contacted me and invited TROVE to exhibit at a very unique show in London. The BoB event brings together some of the best British made brands to a beautiful location and celebrates the very best of British workmanship, innovation and food. With only 3 weeks notice I had to create an exhibition display for TROVE. Some of you may know that I am an avid watcher of Game of Thrones and one of the most impressive scenes in the last season was of 'The Wall'. Earlier in the year I had already posted an image of TROVEs stacked as a Throne, so why not extend the theme to building a wall?

The video and photos below shows the machine in action and final cutting on a paper guillotine.Read More
