Cast tinnen shapes of shipwrecks. The use of sand casting to make shipwrecks began in 2008. The contrast of a remnant of a failed action or even a disaster and a shining form with tactile skin is the reason I do make ‘failures’. This technique provides a precise result but it is also quite time consuming and creates a series of unique shapes.
