During January 2013 I undertook a ceramic packing project for the Museum of Anthropology (MOA), Vancouver. A private donation of Peruvian ceramics was donated to the museum, which had to be wrapped and packed, before being transported to the museum where and inventory of the collection was made. Mouldy ceramics were also dealt with, which required the use of correct personal protective equipment (PPE), such as a respirator, gloves, and lab coat. Some framed textiles were also wrapped as part of the donation. The project required a high degree of organisation, team work, and careful handling. Below are some pictures from the project.
