Though I have always had a deep admiration for whales, the universe has been sending so many pings my way the last few weeks, it occurred to me that I was supposed bring them in to my work.

This sperm whale was created using the gorgeous 19th century illustrations from the enigmatic Charles Melville Scammon.

Born in Pittston, Maine in 1825, he is a study in contrasts. Known for both his landmark book on the ocean life of the Pacific Northwest and for the wholesale slaughter of the Gray Whale.
His story fascinates me and finding these gorgeous illustrations inspired me to use them as the basis for some new whale pieces.
This whale has been created from a mixed blues starburst of distressed tin. I’ve used a piece of drift lumber I found along the Maine coast as the backdrop. Each piece of tin is secured to the wood using tiny nails. 

The finished piece is approximately 10” long, 4” tall and 1.5” deep. It is signed, titled and has a sawtooth hanger on the back. It can also sit on a horizontal surface.

Each piece of metal comes to me having lived a previous life--in some cases multiple lives! It is not unusual for the material to sometimes have scuffs, scratches, faded portions, and general wear and tear. If a flawless finish is important to you, please zoom in to the pictures here to look for imperfections that might be distracting for you.

All adaptive reuse pieces come to you neatly displayed on an upcycled card and sustainably wrapped ready for gift-giving.

Please contact me if you have any other questions.
