Merope Pease - Cambois Wreck
By Merope Pease
31 x 28 x 5.5 cm
Salvaged wood taken from a wreck that got stuck in the sands after breaking its moorings near Blyth, Northumberland.
Her work is dictated by what she finds combing beaches and rivers across the UK.
Merope says, “I like the boats to stay looking very much as I find them. I find so many different sorts of pieces and each one is unique but it's always their integral feel, shape and colour that appeals to me.”
An eclectic array of striped fabrics is used for the boat sails, all of which are carefully shaped to look authentic.
