Gift from the Sea
Dale Copeland, 2020
assemblage of found objects
80 cm tall
A dried puffer fish is such a delight to find.
And those things hanging at the bottom?
I was astonished to find that they're sea urchin spikes!
Our kina (sea urchins) are much smaller, with thin spikes only about an inch long.
These ones make a lovely noise when they hit together in the wind.

Dale's studio can be found at Puniho,
Surf Highway, Coastal Taranaki, New Zealand
