A delightful pair of little round driftwood fish wall art hangings, designed and handmade on the Jurassic Coast of West Dorset, England by driftwood artist Rachel White.
Amongst the intricately interwoven pieces of naturally textured driftwood are tiny sea-worn fragments of tawny brown and sea foam green sea glass from Lyme Regis, designed to catch the light. The two fish also feature small seashells, sea-worn cork and drifted seed pods.
Making an ideal addition to any room, these driftwood fish will bring a little piece of the English coast into your home.
Living just a mile from the sea, Rachel is a driftwood and beach combing artist living in Weymouth and sources her materials on her long walks along the shores of the beautiful Jurassic Coast; a World Heritage site.
Carefully interwoven to give an intricate sculptural design effect, all of Rachel’s creations use driftwood sculpted by the tides, ‘as found’ and are not shaped or altered in any way.
Rachel’s art typically includes tiny interwoven found objects: sea glass from Lyme Regis, small shells and sometimes other finds such as beach pottery fragments or fossils to add interest to her driftwood pieces.
Her unique driftwood art is all made in her workshop and studio in Weymouth. She has exhibited and worked with driftwood since 2011; a part-time interest which has evolved into a full time career.
Each fish is numbered and signed by the artist and has a handwritten strung tag describing their Jurassic Coast provenance.
Overall Size: each fish approx 14 x 16 cm long (5.5 x 6 inches)
