Purpose Made Ephemera #1 - Circe's Beermats

Here are a couple of beermats I made a few years ago as part of an MA project. All the items in the project were hand made short run multiples or one-offs, and they were collected together to form a "tactile narrative". The story I constructed drew inspiration from Greek Mythology and these beermats are a reference to The Odyssey and the transformation through intoxication of man to pig (something that still goes on to this day on Friday nights throughout the land) Beer mats have always fascinated me, so they easily found their way into the project. As part of this narrative they have been packaged into a souvenir from the ancient realm, touched and beer-splashed by a legend and yours to keep forever . . .
