Art and Beauty of Driftwood

Driftwood is wood that has been washed onto a shore or beach of a sea, lake, or river by the action of winds, tides, waves, or man. It is a form of marine debris or tidewrack. In some waterfront areas, driftwood is a major nuisance. However, the driftwood provides shelter and food for birds, fish and other aquatic species as it floats in the ocean. Driftwood can be used as part of decorative furniture or other art forms, and is a popular element in the scenery of fish tanks.

Vincent Richel gathers driftwood from the lakes in the Western Mountains of Maine, cleans the wood and creates sculptures inspired by his surroundings. The sculptures pay homage to the cycle of life.
