AN ISLE of Wight eco-sculptor has remained busy during the Covid-19 pandemic, despite having to adapt his methods to fit in with new regulations.

Resourceful Glenn Martin spent lockdown completing a series of projects using only recycled materials, having become interested in design and creation following a move to the Island at the age of 12.

His materials over the years have included plastics, mixed metals, sea glass, wood and ghost rigging from Island beaches — keeping communities tidy, while contributing to some dazzling structures.

Glenn said: "All creators have to be more resourceful and self-sufficient during these times. I think in this modern era of consumerism, we are in danger of losing the ability and inclination for these things.

"My next plans are to work within the community more, producing more community sculptures and structures that help wildlife using recycled materials.

"I have done many workshops with various schools and worked with all ages using only recycled materials from key stage one to senior citizens, and would love to hear from people with a passion for the environment and nature across the Island's communities."

Glenn has recently launched a Facebook page called Ghost of the Sea, and is inviting other individuals and groups to produce iconic sculpture for key locations on the Island using only materials collected from our beaches.
