Three distinctive ceramic sail boats are the focal point of this stunning piece of unique driftwood wall art by artist Shirley Vauvelle.
The characterful earthenware ceramic boats are each embossed with different patterns and then glazed with layer upon layer of glaze to create the distinctive look that Shirley is so well known for.
The boats come complete with driftwood mast, wire rigging and sails made from distressed fabric and sit side by side atop a driftwood plank, as if sailing out to sea together.
Running along the middle of the driftwood plank are the words 'Fair Isle Gale warning issued. Gale force 8 now veered southwesterly. Wind Southwest 6 to gale 8, decreasing 4 or 3 later. Rough or very...' The plank also has two beautiful ceramic fish on it, embossed and glazed in the same unique way as the boats.
Shirley's 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.
