carved from a single piece of wood.
There is an old ship building facility in the Port of Vancouver not far from my studio. It’s a wasteland of abandoned rusting components from enormous vessels built and repaired on site. I first went down there while studying textile design to gather up bits of rusted iron to use in some mark making and textile dying projects.
huge old anchor chain links, helped a ship shelter from the storm.
It is the lingering memory of the sculptural shapes of huge rusted iron shards and vestiges of massive anchor chain that inspired me to return. Much of the site had been cleaned up but there remained several patinated links of chain that I couldn’t resist.
