Since creating this litle piece, I've learnt more about the past inhabitants of the old forest and its surrounding landscape which, with rising sea levels, was submerged underwater some 6,000 or so years ago.

This fantastic piece of bone, with its nobbly tooth still held in its socket, I think dates back to this time; perhaps the jawbone of an auroch, a now extinct relative of modern day cattle.

None of my subsequent beach-combings has ever thrown up a jaw fragment in as good a condition as this - at least 4,000 years old,this is an exceptionally rare relic of a long lost age. With a jaunty yellow plastic tail, I've hopefully lent it a touch of levity: 'Jaws Truly'.
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.
