Steel, recycled plastic, 2 metres x 4 metres.
Inspired by Ovid's story of Baucis and Philemon.
David : "The frame was created from steel rods left over from making creels, then covered in a mesh of recycled chicken wire.
All the plastic was collected from beaches in the Scottish Highlands.
I'm an artist based now in Edinburgh. I'm originally from the Scottish Highlands where I grew up in a fishing family so I was brought up with a respect of conservation and the environment.
This sculpture is part of a series, all created with discarded plastic from beaches or streets, or both.
I wanted to make art out of trash, which highlights the wastefulness of our throwaway age and looming environmental disaster."
