British-born sculptor Tony Cragg uses color families and a carefully curated collection of flotsam and jetsam in his large-scale installations. Born in Liverpool, Cragg has an amazing collection of pieces made from found materials from household trash to construction refuse. We love the impressionistic charm of his pieces- gorgeous and graphic from far away, intricate and detailed from up close.

This is a unique way to corral your beachcombing finds - shells, sea glass, driftwood. Any design would work but I like the lined design of like elements. I don't know if the "A" was found on the beach but its inclusion is brilliant.
