Country of context
Produced at SOCOG workshop. It was during this workshop that we extended the colour range or palette of the Hemi system, to accomodate all the amazing colours that Queenie mixed from the basic ochre palette. We still have a bottle of "Queenie Pink" opaque as a keepsake in the storage cupboard.
