Tea Clipper by Sarah Jane Brown
Tea Clipper by Sarah Jane Brown. This sculpture shows a small ship in full sail mounted on a rocking piece of driftwood, emulating the rolling waves of the sea. Complete with a comical seagull. Hand-crafted with driftwood, metal and newsprint.
This beautiful sculpture measures approximately 19cm in length 2.5cm in width and 6cm in height.
Sarah Jane's quirky sculptures have been inspired by her travels observing the architecture of various countries where tall, thin buildings lean together tracing the contours of the land. This collection involves the manipulation of wood to create the landscape on which the handmade tin houses and boats sit. Newspaper trees or seas made of maps are added to complete the scenes.
Each piece of driftwood is carefully selected and the unpredictability of the material results in each sculpture being unique but with an instantly recognisable signature style that is Sarah Jane's.
Sarah Jane has been making and selling her work since 1994 when she set up her studio with the benefit of a Princes' Trust grant after completing a design degree.
