Driftwood Openwork Fish | Rachel White

Driftwood Openwork Fish

£70.00
Description
Constructed to form an openwork skeletal outline, the driftwood for this fish was gathered from various beaches along Dorset’s Jurassic Coast.

The carefully handmade design by Rachel White features an eye made from a top shell and 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.

Rachel 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 ‘currentMood’ magazine, Asia, headlining the feature ‘Trash to Treasure’ (March 2019).

Each piece is numbered and signed by the artist and bears a handwritten strung tag describing its provenance.
