Description

This piece, as with all my sculptures, is a unique, handmade miniature seaside harbour scene, made from North East beach driftwood. The wood is sourced from Seaburn, Roker and Seaham, as well as other North East beaches.
I do not have a "Production line" - each piece found has its own unique shape, form and individual characteristics which I consider before developing it into a finished artwork.
This small rustic scene includes a single red driftwood cottage with fishing gear. There are lobster pots, a boat, buoys and a seagull which all sit on a heavily weathered piece of rounded driftwood.

I started collecting interestingly shaped pieces of driftwood whilst at the beach, when making sketches, and taking photographs, as research for my paintings. These sculptural pieces are yet another way of expressing my love for the North East coast line.

The wood is collected all year, more so in the Winter months, when storms batter the rugged coastline, and wash up naturally sculptured driftwood. Some pieces of wood must have been washed around the seas for many years and travelled endless miles. I often wonder about the history of the driftwood I collect and what its previous life might have been? Part of a boat, fishing gear or some everyday household item? Previous owners could never dream it would end up as part of a sculpture on someones mantelpiece or bookcase. Each piece is then carefully crafted into a unique, one off seaside landscape. All materials used in the process of creating each piece are all locally sourced, up cycled products.

    This piece is SO charming and lovely. Both the frame and the subject go so well together. Already so dear to me.
