PETRA GIEDE-BARNES

Driftwood, dwarf juniper from Ben More, melted refuse and pebble from Ardmair Bay

On a walk along the beach in Achiltibuie I found this amazing piece of melted plastic rubbish.  It was shouting out to become a central part of something more important.  I combined it with a piece of Scottish driftwood and a branch of a juniper tree which I had found on a walk up Ben More.  The beautiful smooth and pristine white pebble from Ardmair bay contrasts wholeheartedly with the colourful jumble of shapes and textures of the jewel-like melted plastic.
