Drifting Towards the Gulf Sculpture Series



Drifting Towards the Gulf is a body of sculpture work created by Assimilation Artist Grey Cross. Each piece in the collection uses driftwood found by the artist from the Mississippi River. The diversity of the shapes and sizes of driftwood as a component for sculpture captured Grey’s attention and imagination and he went to work after some brief experimentation developing this unique body of thirty sculptures.

Each sculpture includes a certificate of authenticity signed, dated and fingerprinted by the artist. 

IMPORTANT! All prices listed do not include shipping and handling. All sculptures require special shipping to guarantee the art arrives undamaged to the buyer. Please consult with the studio for shipping on each item before purchasing.
