3. Knot unknown.

I sometimes find ropes or portions thereof washed up around the coast and bays. They can be beautiful in their own rite as a result of the colour and material combined with the wearing process of the sea and shore. In addition they often retain tactile clues to their previous life such as the way the ends are burned or taped off or the way they are stretched or cut or mechanically worn. The final layer that makes them a worthy addition to the blog is the retention of various working knots. Capturing the history, craft and physical dynamism of activities that have taken place somewhere on the water.
