Dorset steel sculptures

The sculptures on this page are made from weathered steel collected on my favourite beach on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset.

 

These rusty pieces may or may not be the last remnants of a section of a 'Mulberry Harbour', a floating platfrom used to move artillery and supplies from the Allied ships to the Normandy beaches for the D-Day landings in June 1944.

I like to think that this is true.

"For there was never yet philosopher

That could endure the toothache patiently,

However they have writ the style of gods,

And made a push at chance and sufferance."
