BOATS 

I buy old fishing boats and use them for creating objects. When I mix glass with parts of used boats, I try to evoke the boats’ ‘memory of the sea’.  Glass when lit, becomes water, solid turns into liquid, and within the womb of the boat, glass in turn remembers sand. My boat remember the perilous journeys it has made, the carpenters’ hands, the fishermen’s songs, the impressions of their bodies on its surfaces.  It remembers life in the sea and lives around the sea.  My art then becomes a mnemonic device and through it I give back to the sea what it has given me.
