Driftwood Spirit: Stunning Sculptures Carved Out of Driftwood and Shells
Powered with rich imagination, Canada, Victoria-based artist Debra Bernier use natural materials such as driftwood, clay and shells create mesmerizing sculptures which represent the spirits of nature. From Bernier’s mind, each piece of driftwood is already a sculpture, created by the caresses of the waves and wind. What she needs to do is to think of its journey and carve its story out. Hence, instead of using the driftwood or shell as blank canvas, Bernier try to extend or shorten the curves and contours that already exist into familiar shapes of animals or peoples’ faces. Below is a small collection of Bernier’s work and you can find more on her facebook or check her Etsy’s shop if you want to own a sculpture or print of her work.
