During our holiday in Dorset in July we visited Chesil Beach and came across a series of sculptures constructed from pebbles, driftwood, shells and flotsam and jetsum. There was no indication who had created them. I later discovered that they were the work of two artists, a painter
and an “all-rounder” whose primary interest is photography. They’ve recently started this WordPress blog.
On the bank above Cogden Beach in Dorset (a section Of Chesil Beach) sculptures made from washed up material have begun to appear. They were started a few years ago in a small way with lobster pot markers and small ‘cairns’, and some remain small scale while others have developed into quite large structures.
Whilst Sandy Woodstone started them and continues to modify them, other beach users have contributed to their growth and have begun new ones, so that we now have a community art project that stretches almost from Cogden Beach to West Bexington.
