Driftwood boat, fishing net and plastic fish.

This composition looks easy. Simple. Yet it took several years of beach-combing to find the beautiful shapes and colours involved. Subtle boat shape. Curved stern and prow, enhanced by rigid triangular sail. It pitches, sways, rolls and surges o'er the waves. Chaos of net. A working vessel. And look at that fine freshly caught fish! (It even looks like smoked haddock).
Sid Burnard portraitSid Burnard was born in Brighton in 1948. Introduced to the art of beachcombing by his Romany grandmother, Sid learnt to appreciate the beauty of nature from an early age. His time at Bristol Guild of Applied Arts gave him a profound understanding of visual arts and crafts and allowed him to put his personal vision into practice.

He is now based in Borth near Aberystwyth in Wales, where the flotsam and jetsam from the nearby sea is his only source of materials. Working with found objects, nothing is changed - simply introduced to one another. His driftwood pieces, usually birds, boats or mythical beasts, are full of his passion, integrity and wonderful humour.
