Mermaid Tail

Artist: Molly and Aisling Cavanough

We love magical creatures! Especially Mermaids. During lockdown in 2020 we were missing our after school art classes at Art by You so Mum gave us a brief to make something we love out of the waste materials we have at home. Mum had some aluminium cables leftover from the nearby solar farms so we separated them, made a circle and my sister held the long pieces together whilst I twisted them in. The shape collapsed a bit but created a great curve as though the mermaid was flicking her tail. We love this sculpture!
