When one thinks of the sea, vessels come to mind, so it is no surprise that my first assemblages were launched by boats.

Whilst "Pesca Fish" shows a monochrome palette, t'was the colourful Sam Llewellyn, (art historian, novelist, editor), who inspired this piece in his story about illegal fishing. 90% of our beach-combing takes place all around the U.K. In addition, rich pickings have been had along the south and west shores of Eire, and the Mediterranean.

In a tiny cove below the 6,000 year old settlement of Salobrena, Costa Tropical, Jo found this fragment of fishing crate. It is the correct scale for the worn, white marine-ply hull. Not a jaunty craft. More a crafty jaunt. What are these fishermen up to?
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.
