Biography

Mark’s work is inspired by coastal life, architecture and the effects the natural environment has on materials such as wood, metal and painted surfaces. Using salvaged metals and wood from the shoreline, Mark presses the objects into clay to give them a beaten appearance. His ships, boats and wrecks end up looking as though they have been weathered, sailing the Seven Seas and washed up on the shore at his feet.
