Sculpture by the sea

One year I hope to visit “Sculpture by the Sea” in Australia. Until then, I make do with seeing sculpture in weathered shapes at British beaches

Cramond causeway, weathered U-boat defences, reminiscent of the cardinal sculptures by Giacomo Manzu.

Or with less sinister features

With a stretch of the imagination, beginning to resemble the Venus of Willendorf

Ogmore beach, wooden groynes weathered in to anthropomorphic shapes

These shapes are percolating through my mind as I have forgotten to bring any sketching or stitching materials on holiday.


  1. Yes, yes, yes come to Oz for Sculpture by the Sea...2018 a big year methinks! Love these eco-sculptures

  2. I love the driftwood ones - I just love drift wood in general - so tactile!


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
