Merope Pease - Solway Tyne Boat

This piece has been made up using wood from three different locations.  The background wood was found along the Solway coastline on the bleakest of days this last winter.  The surrounding pieces come from a small but very colourful fishing boat that was being scrapped at Dunbar Harbour.  The actual boat piece with its combination of blue and maroon paint comes from the hutch of a former pilot boat being scrapped along the River Tyne last year.   It was a major operation to salvage as much wood from the boat as possible without getting in the way of the men chain sawing it up!  Luckily the hutch when I found it was largely intact.
