''Crows-Nest''

2006

15ft x 7ft x 4ft

Oak and steel.

For the waterways trust at the sea lock end of the Ribble Link. Preston. 

This is a literal interpretation of the crow’s-nest on a ship atop the mast, a link between the inland waterways and the anticipation of the open sea. leading  the mind out beyond the link on a maritime adventure.

I wanted to give the bargees a vision of a big black bird of ill-omen just as they are about to leave the safety of the inland waterways and head out to the open sea.
