Blakeney is a coastal village in North Norfolk. On a Winter visit I was drawn to a large decaying rowing boat in one of the inlets, its weathered paint , curved planks of partially rotting wood forming the hull and holes where nails once held it all together. I used strips of clay to create these forms and as I built these sculptures they began to take on a new life, reminiscent of waves. The Large Blakeney were created from a whole bag of clay. This was laid on a bench and struck repeatedly with a rolling pin to create the grooves.The piece was then further refined by carving and holes made. The sculptures can be placed in different ways giving a completely new viewpoint.
