Seth Draper

Seth makes his coastal inspired artwork using a mixture of recycled baked bean tins, driftwood and other bits of flotsam & jetsam he finds along the shoreline.

He grew up on the coast in East Anglia and spent many happy days taking in the delights of the seaside; from crabbing at Walberswick to trawling the local beaches for shells, that elusive piece of amber or maybe even a fossil.

Having moved to Cardiff for University his beachcombing continued. He developed a love for the bits of driftwood with flaky paint and gorgeous rusty patina that washed up on the rocky Welsh coastline. At University he began to make his playful ceramic boats. Over the years he has developed his work in tin and carries on that playful theme in his current work.
