Collected seashells, verdigris metal, beach glass and other small shoreline treasures nestle amongst the driftwood on this anchor wall hanging by Rachel White.
Anchors have a long history and have traditionally become known as sailor’s icons standing for hope and safe homecoming.
Rachel is a driftwood and strandline artist living in Weymouth with her husband, a retired seaman, just a mile from the sea.
Made in her workshop studio, she sources her materials from local beaches and bays along the Jurassic Coast of West Dorset, England.
Her creations use only natural ‘as found’ driftwood pieces - in other words driftwood which has not been shaped or altered in any way.
She has exhibited and worked with driftwood since 2011 and most recently her work with ghost net and beach found plastics has been exhibited at the 2019 ADEX Ocean Expo in Singapore and in current Mood magazine, Asia, headlining the feature ‘Trash to Treasure’ (March 2019).
Rachel’s signature driftwood artwork often includes tiny interwoven found objects to add interest to her pieces, such as sea glass, small shells and on occasion finds such as beach pottery fragments, fossils or beach metal.
The images show the actual item to be dispatched. Each piece is signed by the artist, stamped and numbered, and ready to hang on your wall.
Designed for indoor display only.
The anchor also bears a handwritten tag describing its Jurassic Coastal provenance.
