You know "The Scream" by Munch; here's "The Squawk" by Sid.

Set on an ironwood base, 3 extraordinary items of driftwood.

The lace-like remains of an ancient root system form the stem upon which the parrot perches.

The bird’s body is almost completely hollowed, barnacle adorned, gracefully curved, with sufficient "neck" to accept the amazing head.

What a knot, and that open beak..."pieces of eight"...all unlikely survivors of seasons of seas.
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.
