Shipwreck Collection 2012

© Mirka Janeckova 2013

Shipwreck collection is influenced by the long maritime history of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada where I spent 4 months on the international exchange. I am using the lost wax casting process to create pieces inspired by slow decay of the manmade objects in the deep waters. The coral like organic shapes which are growing from geometric shapes of the ships are then finished with variety of patinas.
