Observing the high tide debris line I noticed that a significant number of the sticks were about the same size. On average they were all about the length of my fingers. The abundance of the pieces all at the same size but consisting of many different types and ages of wood suggested a great base material for a sculpture.
Such short pieces didn’t allow for structure built up, but made for a pleasing arrangement on the ground. The randomness of color and texture added to the visual richness of the sculpture.
