First some rubbings taken from a piece of what I think is fibre-glass.

Then playing with arranging this with other pieces




So much information on this small piece



I am so tempted to phone the number to see if it is still operational.


Colour, shape, texture, human story behind each piece and how they ended up on Charmouth beach. The years involved, the many humans involved in the creation of each piece………

Update01548 is the code for Kingsbridge in Devon, and N.J. and E.F. Ashworth are a ‘Plastics Raw Materials Company’ in Stoverlake, Nr. Kingsbridge. 

11.Jul.16: I phoned and left a message. Mr. Ashworth phoned me back and we had a delightful conversation (more in a later post).

    • Thank you Cathy, I am quite amazed how all these years I have not really noticed the amount of tiny bits of plastic that are sprinkled through the pebbles. I’d be interested to know if you find any on your beaches. ❤


  1. Reblogged this on Wild Daffodil and commented:

    I am becoming more and more intrigued by the whole subject of Beach Cleaning and what to do with all the stuff collected. Now I have started to do the 2 minute Beach Clean, I am shocked at just how much rubbish there is on my local beaches. Being creative with what I find is essential for me to quell the pain of it all. What are we doing to our environment! AAAaaarghhhh! Gripped by this new creative and environmental obsession I need a way to record the journey, so I have created another Blog dedicated to Beach Clean Art.
