Angus made this medicine cabinet for his wife, who was working as a communi-ty midwife at the time. The design was inspired by the sense of mystery and healing power of tribal witchdoctor masks from Benin. Intended to hold small bottles of aromatherapy oil, it has two removable lidded drawers in the centre. Angus added to the sense of mystery by making the back and front of the cabi-net identical, so that it was not obvious how it opened. The personalised nature of the piece, designed for a specific person and with a specific function, pays tribute to the unique quality of handcrafted pieces.
