This collection is a response to my childhood recollections of holidays. They do not represent a particular place, but rather that they recall an emotional response to seeing the sea after a long journey. I hope that you will look at them and see your own special places and memories reflected within them.
Living by the sea gives me access to whatever is bought in on the tide and I make frequent beach forays to stake my claims. I re-use driftwood, sand, plastics, string and anything else that looks interesting along with dyes with jesmonite as my base material. I'm also fascinated by textures.
The pieces in this collection were made by creating layers each of which included a found material and then the finished block was sliced to reveal the patterns you see here.
