Grace Girvan

I am an avid beach-comber. I am interested in the effect the sea has on materials over time: breaking down layers, smoothing and altering form. I use the objects I find as a starting point in my work, often incorporating these objects into my pieces. I attempt to emulate the effects of the sea, primarily through the use of enamel, subtle colour applied in layers, appearing smooth and worn looking.
