Little Boat Sculpture No. 2 - Shirley Vauvelle - SOLD

£ 95.00

Little Boat Sculpture No. 2 by Shirley Vauvelle features an earthenware ceramic boat sitting atop a driftwood block - complete with textured pattern hull with driftwood mast, wire rigging and a distressed fabric sail with the number 5 proudly displayed on it. A delightful free-standing sail boat piece decorated with all of Shirley's individual detailing that looks good from all angles.

The top of the block features a vintage map of the North Coast of Cornwall with Constantine Bay, Treyarnon Beach, Pepper Cove and Fox Cove marked on it.

Map coordinates run around the bottom of the block along with the words 'Wind Southwest 6 to gale 8, decreasing 4 or Fair Isle Gale warn southwesterly'. A Ceramic fish hangs from a rusty nail on the side of the driftwood plinth.

Shirley has a passion for detail, texture and colour - using mark making to emboss the fish and boat and then glaze with layer upon layer of colour.

Her inspiration comes from her love of the coast, country walks with her dog and the fun of creating objects that are a little bit different and quirky.

She likes the idea of layering texture and colour to create pieces that are highly individual and totally unique.

One of Shirley's pieces makes a truly stunning addition to any coastal home.
