Collections through Cake: Burmantofts Vent Brick

One of the partnership projects that curators look forward to each year is with St James’ Hospital. In Spring we install a number of cases into the Bexley Wing there, taking our objects into the hospital for all visitors to see. 

In 2013 the theme was Floral Museum the project was designed by Kirsty, who at the time was our Natural Science Curatorial Trainee. One of her favourite objects that she chose to include was this  amazing Leeds Fireclay Company (from Burmantofts) ventilation brick:

What would be the perfect #MusCake medium to repeat this beautiful ventilation brick in? Chocolate fudge cake of course! 

The flowers fill me with the hope that Spring is on the way …
