Natural driftwood shapes inspire the artist. When she picks up the original piece, she could tell it was a pelican. It only needed extensive sanding work and there he was...EL PELICANO. Then after working on it, she could see yet another shape emerge...a dancer without a head. What is also interesting about the piece is that it stands on blacksmithed piece made from recycled metal that was also found on the beach. These sculptures are extremely rare and make the pride and joy of the advised collector. It takes many steps before such art can be produced. One of the requirements is to find noble wood combined with an interesting and well balanced shape. The artist takes countless trips to the beach every spring-summer and ends up making about 6-8 sculptures per year. Each piece has been thoroughly dried up and cleaned of any impurities. There are very few but still some natural cracks that are just part of the piece.
