Made in Britain
A folk art piece for anyone who loves the sea.
This piece is for anyone young or old who loves the sea; ambling along the beach, watching old boats bobbing on the tide in cosy harbours or just staring out to sea and dreaming. Within the piece there is a nostalgia for childhood holidays, beach combing and crabbing on the quay!
This folksy art piece is made from cut and shaped driftwood salvaged from the seashore and the construction is made inside a simple white box frame that can be hung on a wall.
The surface is richly layered through the build up of collage, using text from books and old pieces of salvaged copper sheet. On top of all of this are then applied several subtle layers of white wash reminiscent of sun bleached driftwoods, this allows the text to discretely show through and allow the natural colour of the rich weather worn wood and the old crumbling paint to reveal itself.
