Flotsam Too

Flotsam arrives in Teignmouth

Having had a successful show of art, craft and design at Lyme Regis in July some work from Flotsam will be drifting along the south coast towards Teignmouth. From Saturday 10th to Thursday 16th September Flotsam Too will be taking up residence in The Beachcomber on the seafront, where six artists and makers will show their work themed around the coast, detritus, what is left behind and recycling materials.

Artists and Makers Taking Part

Landscape painter, Jonathan Mulvaney is constantly drawn to the early light and busy-ness of harbours, whereas Hazel Dormer paints the birds which inhabit the shoreline. Daniel Richardson’s ceramic vessels often feature the magical interaction of ‘tidelines’ when two glazes meet, and Robin Shelton explores chemical interchanges of plants using an experimental photographic eco-printing technique. Anthony Wong creates high-end precious jewellery but loves to also experiment with ‘poor’ materials, and this echoes with Alison Shelton Brown’s passion for combining sculptural ceramics with sea-twine and found fibres to tell stories of the state of our seas and environmental issues.                       

In Residence for the Week

As well as having work on sale, there will also be the chance to see artists at work as Robin, Anthony and Alison will be in residence during the week. Each day they will be out early exploring the sea-line for inspiration and matter to bring back to Beachcombers; experimenting with new ideas either individually or collectively, searching for potential outcomes for new bodies of work in the future.


Come along and see what we have found each day from 10am to 4pm on Teignmouth beach front.
