A piece of Liverpool's history and a piece of functional art in its own right, this pine panel is embedded with three mahogany double-claws. L 540 mm x H 140 mm x D 60 mm. Free UK delivery.


Just to the north of Anthony Gormley's sculptures on Crosby beach is what locals know as the Brick Beach. Here, the rubble of the Blitz on Liverpool was deposited to act as a defence against coastal erosion. For many years I have walked that beach, picking up curiously gnarled pieces of timber. At first I thought they were driftwood, etched into sculptural shapes by the sea, but I came to realise that they were being revealed by the wind and sea from the war rubble I was walking on. It dawned on me that these weren't just bits of wood, these wormeaten pieces of door frame and floorboard, some showing the marks of fire, were part of the history of my home town. I decided to give these beautiful historical remnants of the bombed homes of past Liverpudlians a new lease of life as coat racks. Each has been dried, cleaned up (but not too much), planed flat at the back, treated with preservative, and adorned with hand carved hooks from other reclaimed hardwoods.
