Welcome to Drifting DownTime
Finding things, making things, starting something, never quite sure how it will end up.
I love driftwood: you see it on the beach and it makes you think. And you pick it up, dust it off, turn it this way and that; lay it out to dry for 2-3 weeks, glancing at it every now and then, studying it, watching as it changes weight, colour, shape, sometimes.
And then…there’s a little shifting of something…..and when you put it down, it’s not back with the other pieces, but on the table, ready…
You can find my pieces – made from driftwood, reclaimed wood and sea pottery, sea glass – and other beach findings – for sale at Fabrication, The Light, Leeds; and at Authentic in Uppermill or online at Etsy (see the link in the contacts section).
I am delighted to accept commissions too. The love isn’t only in the making, but in the sending things on their way anew…. xxx
