They come as flat pack.
I considered several options for securing the artworks inside the crate, as it goes I had a chunk of foam left over from packaging another artwork and if fit snug as a bug, how awesome was that!! I also bought another slab of foam to go on top, it ended up being the right internal height, even without prior measuring - the gods were on my side this time :-)
I opted to carve into the foam so the art works fit snug into the hole, first by outlining each art work and carving into the foam using an electric carving knife (images below), I learnt this trick from the foam supplies, the knife cuts into the foam like butter and a cool neat cut too, I wish I knew about this trick years ago!!!
I discovered too that cutting smaller lengths made it easier to pull out evenly - below:
My Domestic Duties Chp.2 art works with their fragile little movable bits; arms, legs and bases all safe and snug in the foam - atleast I can rest easy they will all travel safely inside the crates whilst in transit.
To date; Teasing The Domestic is booked for 2013 and fast filling for 2014.
