The industry of cockle picking is now under threat due to the dying out of hundreds of these shellfish along the massive cockle beds. The cockles are usually buried under the mud of the estuary, now all that is evident of their presence are vacant shells.
As a water sports
enthusiast and keen surfer, most of my spare time is spent surfing
on the other side of the Burry Inlet on the Gower beaches. An area
named for it’s outstanding natural beauty in 1956. As a silversmith
my designs are based on the beauty of the coastlines of Britain and
I draw much of my inspiration from marine life, having always had
a fascination for the rocks and shells created by the movement of
the ocean. I want my work to reflect the love and respect that I have
for the sea and I feel it is important to highlight the struggle for
survival of these shellfish.
