Driftwood Sea Star Pair
Sea stars or starfish as they are commonly known are neither stars nor fish technically speaking, but who cares when they are as pretty as these driftwood ones by Rachel White.
The design of the sea star pair are interwoven with locally found natural seashells.
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 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.
The stars also bear a handwritten tag describing their Jurassic Coast provenance.
Size: each star approx 28 x 5 x 28 cm tall (11 x 2 x 11 inches)
