“Ceramic Tideline”.

by timpughartist

The artwork is part of a series of temporary beach installations making use of enlarged photocopies from  collected Victorian and Edwardian ceramic segments gathered from the tideline. The ceramic as well as glass and other domestic finds are products washed up from a subterranean midden located next to the harbour wall. The copies were adhered onto a smooth boulder in the outline of a map depicting  a overhead view of the flow of nearby North Beach.The artwork was created on South Beach which is closed to the general public because of the danger of subsidence from cliffs of slag heap from an old collliery.
