The Cork Art

These pieces of art were made from the findings that Phil Thomason and his brother Wayne discovered during their many fishing adventures. On those occasions when the fish refused to bite, they amused themselves by searching for pieces of driftwood. While pursuing this endeavor, they began seeing corks and various flotation devices used for fishing. These devilish devices would be spotted in the most unreachable, tangled twisted mass of vines and brambles but Phil and Wayne had to retrieve them at all costs. As fishermen, it was easy to imagine how long the corks must have been out there and the stories they could tell. It was as though the corks demanded to be rescued from their watery grave. Hundreds of corks were amassed from the local rivers, creeks and waterways of Jacksonville. Many years later Phil decided to give these corks another life . . . thus Cork Art was born.
