Architecture Sketch Almery ."In addition to the large chest or coffers used for safe keeping of vestments, ornaments , documents and other valuables, English churches were not infrequently supplied with more convenient receptacles. The chest-cupboard was a much more handy form. By this expression we mean those flat-topped. chest like cases that open in front with a door or doors, instead of a top with a lid. Chests and coffers were undoubtedly commoner than any from of wooden almery or standing cupboard in churches. In 1297 on a visit to the church of Belcham, in Essex , England mention is made of a lock up cupboard, armariolium cum serura.
Below follow some examples of Architecture Sketch Almery Pictures from various English Churches for your inspiration. The architectural details of masonary, wood carving and ironmongery designs are often intricate with delicate pattern structures imbued with symbolic meaning . There are many surviving almeries especially in England, some of stone mason design some with old oak and ironmongery designs .
"The word almery admits of a wide variety of spelling. In almost every case it is plain to see that these almery recesses were originally fitted with doors , and the doors doubtless locked. In not a few cases where old churches are well ordered, the almeries usually found in the north wall of the chancel near the altar , have been refitted with doors and locks, and put again, after years of neglet, to their original sacred purposes. There are , however, and this is more interesting from the antiquarian standpoint - a fair number of instances where the old medieval doors , or parts of them remain.
" As a rule Wall almeries where plainly squared , and lack any mouldings ; but there are some exceptions... Occasionally these almeries in chancel walls are of an oblong shape, an in such cases they are perhaps intended for the storage of altar or other candles. In a few instances wall almeries are found at the west end , and it is quite possible that their primary use was for the reception of salt, tapers etc , that were required at baptism... Now and then almeries are foud at the east wall of the chancel, in such cases it has been stated , but without any warrant, that they were intended as a receptacle for the pyx. It is however much more likely that such an almery would be utilized for the safeguarding under lock and key of relics.

Dole Cupboard Saint Albans Abbey
" A latter form of almery known as a " dole cupboard" was a receptacle for bread distribution among the poor. It always had a railed or pierced front, so that there might be a good current of air. In a recess of the south transcept of the great Abbey Church of St Albans are three of these food almeries or dole cupboards. They are shallow receptacles , and their fronts are fitted with slender ornamental rails; each one is capable of containing about a dozen small loaves.
Almery in Carlisle Cathedral
" At Carlisle there are two painted almeries of the 15th century " , one of them is illustrated in the architecture drawing above. " They are painted with conventional representations of the thistle, and have long strap-hinges with pierced ends, under which may be traced remains of crimson velvet. One of these almeries is painted round with border of rosettes, enclosing the initials T.G. , probably thise of Thomas Gondibour, who was friar in the latter part of the 15th century ." ECF

I am intriqued by the notion of universal consciousness and choose to peek closely at the small particles that make up existence.
Human and living form cell biology, the interplay of microcosm and macrocosm, quantumphysics and the spiritual connection to the Self all nurture me with an endless stream of inspiration.
The female form and its nature of being, the beauty of motherhood, viewing the world in fragments rather than wholes and the palpable energy exchange and communication between them are central themes in my artwork.
I enjoy making the invisible visible and creating openended visual artworks that invite the viewer to explore deeper within their own layers of perception.
Contemporary Mixed media art techniques provide a rich playground for my artistic impulses and allow room for an individual approach to the multilayered facets of my artwork.
