PEBBLE STORIES BY SIMON MASON

Simon's work is now available from our newly opened gallery, located at Station Approach, Penarth, Cardiff. You can park right outside too! Come and see his fantastic work!

"I come from a small coastal town called Llanelli in South Wales. It’s a truly beautiful place to live with plenty of shoreline to explore and enjoy. For as many years as I can remember, I have had a fascination with beaches and all the flotsam(Treasure) that you find there. I can lose myself for hours imagining the journeys pieces of driftwood may have taken before it arrived at my favourite spot. I sometimes send them back out to sea, maybe someone far far away will find it next, maybe you. Even when I was a young child, I loved the pebbles we found on our beaches.  I would collect the strange stones take them home and use them as characters in my imaginary stories. They were my action figures, I gave them names, I was an odd child. 

Then while on a cottage holiday on the West Wales coast I saw some Pebble Art (It was actually hanging in the Loo!) and it immediately brought back all the memories of ‘Stonie the stone’ and all his weirdly shaped chums. I was so taken with the beauty and simplicity of the work that  I decided then and there (On the loo) to create some pebble art for my own home.

I went to my favorite beach and sat there collecting stones and with very little idea of what I wanted to create. Before too long the pebbles began to come to life once more, each had its own story to tell.  So, ever since that day I have always based my work on the tales within the stones, some of them are the stories I imagined as a small child…." - Simon Mason

 

The photos show a new large piece(50cm) that Simon has produced for the Gallery. 'Revival' is completely original and is produced from recycled blue cobalt glass.
