Lobster Pots

A strange place to find a large collection of lobster pots, buoys and other fishing regalia – right in the middle of Whiddy Island, in what seems about the most distant point form the shore.

It is as if this is a clandestine hoard.

  1. When I see like objects in abundance like this it attracts my eye, I see the repeating patters, the beauty in unity yet the space for uniqueness. As with all art forms it is in the examination of the details that we are able to detect the nuances of individuals working together which perfect the whole. I love the fact that in my interaction with other artists (and other beings) I discover a little more of myself. Thanks for sharing, .
