Found Objects

So far all my pieces have been found on the reach between Kew and Barnes Bridge, these have been a metal based object which uses have finished.  By recording these object but taking them away from their original setting and placed in an art environment the status increases by ever the idea behind what they are now or the inviable labour or visible labour that these found object have had.

My next found object is a buoy/ boat fender which has been battered and imprinted over the years it has been used. the idea here is to cast many of these in bronze with each one getting more and more disfigured eventually so you cannot see its original form. Plus also giving what is an under valued but very important object. This series is to go along side what will hopefully be the perfect bronze anchor and rope to show the contrast between these objects and their importance.
