The two sided design has been made upon a driftwood find and shows a simple blue headed fish on the reverse with a copper stud eye and tail.
Propped on a table, wall hung or perhaps suspended on thread to spin gently revealing the duel design, the piece has a number of display possibilities.
Laurence creates contemporary art works using a variety of materials and enjoys experimenting with new and unusual combinations to bring you something truly original.
Laurence is an accomplished artist producing highly decorative and desirable works of art. His jewellery, pictures and decorative fish sculptures all feature his wonderful use of coastal imagery and love of the sea.
He has worked as a freelance artist to Liberty, Parker Knoll, Habitat and Gallery Five, before eventually taking full time employment with the BBC as a graphic designer illustrating material for Play School and Jackanory.
Since his early retirement in 1999, he has been able to concentrate on his craftwork, which has always been an important focus to his creativity.
His work is currently exhibited at various galleries around the country.
A unique and individual piece of coastal art.
