Antarctic Item 044


These washers were found by my McMurdo friend Sharona Thompson who has a keen eye and appreciation for wonderfully weathered material.

I’m excited about these for both shape and texture. For shape because circles are central to my imagery, from blowholes to portholes and ice holes to ozone holes. And for the ravaged surfaces as physical evidence of Antarctica’s unforgiving elements. Thanks Sharona!
