The Plunger Cove Story
one of a kind art from reclaimed materials
Boats, bots and flying things.
Welcome to PLUNGER COVE.
I was born and raised in Vancouver and was lucky enough to grow up with the summer cabin on Indian arm. With a couple of boats, a bucket of buttons, rusty nails, blocks of wood and some old Archie comics and a grandfather who loved to teach me how to use tools. We made our own fun!
These things stuck with me as I grew up. I love to create things from
repurpose, reclaimed and found materials to create one of a kind art pieces.
I’ve been making the boats, whimsical watercraft, as I call them for many years. Work boats mostly, tugs and fishing boats of the west coast. The use of reclaimed materials give these a real been to sea feel.
Recently I’ve added lighthouses, on driftwood bases. Seagulls also seem like a natural fit into my mostly nautical artworks.
Submarines are also a new addition and seem to be a big hit, as long as they are yellow!
I have found myself wondering into the world of vintage sci-fi. The submarines morphed into spacecraft and robots have made an entrance!
New work is always exciting and keeps the artistic blood flowing.
My work travels all over the world and I love to hear from customers,
drop me a line or better yet send me a photo of my work in its new home.
Thanks for visiting,
