Find sea peas on shingle coast amongst sea kale and yellow horned poppies - supposedly the roots of these sprawling, spiralling plants sustained fishing villages in times of famine. This work is one of a series of Sea Pea casts including an open edition Crabbe's Pea produced for Galloper Sands Gallery and named after the 17th century poet and botanist, George Crabbe. Crabbe recorded the apocryphal seapea root folktale in his botanical works.
