Washed ashore Tide chandelier

Sustainability Aspects: Made from debris washed ashore on the Kent coastline


The original Tide chandelier is part of a larger body of work based on the collection of ’ man made’ debris washed up on a specific stretch of Kent coastline. Stuart Haygarth has been collecting material over many years and the work is still in progress. The material collected is sorted and categorized and several individual pieces of work were produced among which the Tide chandelier.

The Tide chandelier is created from clear and translucent objects, primarily made of plastic. Each object is different in shape and form, yet they come together to produce one sphere. The sphere is an analogy for the moon which effects the tides which in turn wash up the debris.

The objects hang on monofilament line held by ‘split shot’ from a 1.5 metre square MDF platform above. A bit of a pity though that the light source is a 100w incandescent bulb.

Hanging platform : 152cm x 152cm
Sphere diameter : 150cm

The Edition of 10 is sold
