A very bright and sunny morning at my outdoor studio yesterday. Collected some interesting pieces of wood. I also collected a big bunch of seaweed. Thinking that I may incorporate some in plaster when building up a figure. I like the idea of using the material found at the river to help create the form. Will let it dry out first, and see where it leads me.

This is a new small sculpture. Mother and child. Form becomes very interesting when it is peppered with holes. By chance the holes on the smaller figurer describe the features of the face. This is nature at work, and a happy accident. I will be working on more figures using this sort of starting point. Will be interesting and a challenge to translate into bronze at some point.

Had a good walk yesterday. Coastal erosion is uncovering all sorts of material. Here is an old paving brick, perfectly worn into a sculptural head. The eyes are mortar left in the recesses. Thought it looked very like a Brancusi sculpture. Think I will mount it on a teak base.
