I have stated many times that Jo is the colourist in our family. However, even I managed this one!

The beautiful log body had an abstract bird shape as it sat, marooned on the pebbles one morning. It had endured a very long voyage, as shown by the wear and plant life that had started to live on it.

It hadn't been in the studio long before I started offering different heads to it. This is the most ridiculous one and has that suggestion of orange, so it had to be used. Strengthening that theme, the pathetic little sprouting of tail-feathers gave balance. In the box of nets and ropes was some black and orange, a perfect vest. The square section of log block set the compostition in appropriate fashion. It still makes a smile.
Sid Burnard portraitSid Burnard was born in Brighton in 1948. Introduced to the art of beachcombing by his Romany grandmother, Sid learnt to appreciate the beauty of nature from an early age. His time at Bristol Guild of Applied Arts gave him a profound understanding of visual arts and crafts and allowed him to put his personal vision into practice.

He is now based in Borth near Aberystwyth in Wales, where the flotsam and jetsam from the nearby sea is his only source of materials. Working with found objects, nothing is changed - simply introduced to one another. His driftwood pieces, usually birds, boats or mythical beasts, are full of his passion, integrity and wonderful humour.
