Ship in a Bottle by Sarah Jane Brown
The sculpture is of a small ship at full sail, inside a wire bottle set on a driftwood block. Lovingly hand crafted by Sarah Jane Brown with metal, wire, newsprint and driftwood.
This wonderful sculpture measures approximately 15.5cm in length 7cm in width and 9cm 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.
