Description

Made from driftwood found on my local beach. Called 'Starship' as I can image similar shaped crafts flying around in Sci Fi movies.

No harmful chemicals are used in the cleaning and sanitising of the driftwood.

Tensegrity is a term used for structures that use tension to give them their structural integrity. By utilising the tension in the strings you can get an object to looks like it's defying gravity.

Dimensions:
Width 28cm
Height 20cm
Depth 13cm

I offer free postage and packing as I will reuse any plastic wrapping I have. This is to help limit the amount that ends up in landfill.

Inspiration

I have been interested in Tensegrity after seeing some models made from Lego and wanted to use the same principles for the unique and unusual shapes you get from driftwood. This makes every sculpture totally unique and gives me a different challenge on everyone I make.

My inspiration for this design came to me when I found the top Y piece, I knew almost straight away what I wanted to do with it. It was then just a matter of finding the other pieces I had in my driftwood collection that would fulfill my vision.
