Stone Sculptures At Maen Ceti

30 May

I did some sketching en plein air today at Cefn Bryn on the Gower Peninsula. The main attraction has always been Maen Ceti (Arthur’s Stone), but recently a nearby cairn has been getting more attention with people making stone tower sculptures on it. Husb decided to build one and I drew him. I used black, sanguine and white conte crayons into a brown paper sketchbook.

It was odd seeing the spiky stone forms all over the cairn as we approached along the path from the road. It used to be a bit difficult to see the cairn in the past, it was overgrown and the mound of rocks was easily overlooked but now people are using their creativity to make it more of a focus.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left and to see the complete image.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
