Arteology

Ceffyl Dur

The Sea Horse is modelled on a lead toy found a long time ago by a local resident when beach combing at Gallows Point.

It was only 4 cms  high. I have made it large, pounding through the waves, when in fact it was tiny cast onto the shingle by the tide of the Menai Straits.

Sea King

This character made by Clare Calder-Marshall stands 30cms high. He is made from beachcombed bits: rags, sacking, zips; his crown is created from model boats found during the demolition of one of the fishermen's sheds at Gallows Point.
