Driftwood Openwork Fish
The carefully handmade design by Rachel White is ready to hang on your wall bringing a flavour of the English coast to your home.
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.
Rachel is a driftwood and strandline artist living in Weymouth, just a mile from the sea, with her husband, a retired seaman. She sources her materials on her long beachcombing walks along the shores of the beautiful Jurassic Coast: a World Heritage site.
Made in her workshop studio, she sources her materials from local beaches and bays along the Dorset coastline. 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 Mood Magazine, Asia, headlining the feature ‘Trash to Treasure’, more recently her work was shown in the December issue of the US magazine 'Beach Combing'.Each piece is numbered and signed by the artist and bears a handwritten strung tag describing its provenance.
