‘Treasure Map’

Steel, pyrography on timber, glass

70cm x 50cm




Creative metalwork pirate skull mounted on a pyrographed timber pirate map.


How does your work engage with the theme ‘The World at Home’?

I am hugely inspired by old school tattoo designs, and have been catching up on a lot of reading while in Lockdown. The skull is a common motif that is used in tattoos, motorbike culture and pirate literature design. This multi media wall sculpture brings the pirating world into my home. I have also included my favourite beach on the Treasure map to give it a personal touch.
