Driftwood Heart Wall Hanging
Bringing a real flavour of the coast to your home, this fabulous Driftwood Heart wall hanging by Rachel White uses carefully interwoven pieces to create a deep, intricate heart shaped design.
All manner of interesting bits and bobs including shells, sea glass and beach pottery are gathered and incorporated within its shape.
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.
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. Her work with ghost nets and beach found plastics was exhibited at the 2019 ADEX Ocean Expo in Singapore and also featured in CurrentMood Magazine, Asia, headlining the feature ‘Trash to Treasure’, more recently her work was shown in the December issue of the US magazine 'Beach Combing'.
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.
The heart also bears a handwritten tag describing its Jurassic Coast provenance.
