This piece is like a long beach walk, observing the myriad jewels thrown up by the ceaseless sea: shells, sea-worn glass, rocks and pebbles, pieces of sea urchin, sponges, seaweed, plastic, coral, twigs, pottery, pumice, rope, tangled fishing line, wood, cuttlefish, crab claws, bones, lids, opercula, a button and a metal ring… each has an individual story, ending in an assemblage.
