"My dad's family used to own an apothecary shop in China. I never saw it, but I have seen life-sized models of such places in museums and always wanted to do one in miniature. When I saw the Bespaq apothecary cabinet, I knew I had the key piece of furniture for my shop. I cut out names of herbs from pictures of Chinese medicine cabinets -- like the ones shown on your blog -- to label the drawers. Kiva Atkinson made some of the bottles of herbs, as well as the gensing roots on the counter. . I filled other bottles myself using herbs from my kitchen."
