'Some aspects of my work are of a serious nature concerning conservation and the survival of the animal kingdom, others appear more light hearted. All of it reflects the importance of our fellow creatures. I try to give my sculptures personalities of their own and let them speak for themselves'
The ceramic bird depicted in Tidal Shame is a gannet, a sea bird which is common to the city of Liverpool.
Trapped by authentic sea plastic and detritus collected from UK shores, this sculptural installation presents a striking image of our global marine problem and the real concern we must have of protecting animals.
Not only does Tidal Shame showcase the effects that plastic waste has on the natural world, the sculpture highlights the impact that waste has on the birds that inhabit it. Tidal Shame echoes the importance of celebrating our fellow creatures
