January 2014

January 2014
Photo Description:
The piece is called January 2014 because of the highly unusual weather currently hitting the coasts and beaches of the UK. These waves are more powerful than the unusual tidal patterns we are used. This is clearly visible in some of the news story one in particular that caught my attention, this was the story based around a rock stack off the coast of Dorset, that was estimated to be 150 million years old was washed away, this is proof in its self that the weather conditions are completely irregular. The sculpture is made from a wire and wooden substructure which is then layered in Mod-Roc and scrim, then finally coated in layers of plaster. The back of the structure is made from material dipped in plaster and then left to dry. Once dry a few more layers of plaster where added to create some stability.
