Colours of the Coast


Set of three coastal treasures in linen thread cocoon baskets.


Categories: ,

As I walk along the coast I see many things echoed in each other. Colours, textures and forms are repeated over and over again.

In this piece I have cocooned three treasures found on my walks, which are some of my favourite coastal colours - brick, ivory and grey. I see them in the rocks, shells, rusted metal, fragments of ceramics and even seaweed at certain times of year, and my worktable is always full of them.

I have echoed the colour of each piece in the linen thread, that is used for one of the other baskets. Each combination working together, as they do on the shoreline.

Size approx: brick pebble 6 x 5cm. ivory ceramic fragment 7 x 4.5cm. cement pipe fragment 7 x 5.5cm
