Found in Essex

Found in Essex

Earlier on today I received notification that six more ceramic eggs by the artist Anon had been found on the Essex coast nearly a year after they had been placed in the tidal River Thames.

The exact location of where they were found is still unknown but recent finds indicate that many were washed up on the north shoreline from Purfleet to Tilbury and beyond. In light of this news I am planning a trip to search the shoreline from Tilbury Fort and up and around to Coryton. Late last year I searched the southern shore near Halstow Marshes covering a few miles past St. Mary‘s Marshes and on towards Allhallows but found nothing. However having never been to that part of the world before I was keen to go back to explore the Essex and North Kent marshes.

Having refered back to a map of the Thames I wouldn’t be surprised to find these ceramic eggs washed up between Thames Haven and Canvey Island.

For those who are interested, Anon has been hard at it again but this time placing numbered bottles outside of houses in Brighton and by placing some in prominent positions near Banksy style street art. These bottles have a common thread to last years ceramic egg installation, the bottles are impressed with the words of Lawrence Oats ‘ I’m going out I may be some time’…if the eggs are anything to go by they have been floating around for some time. This time the message is on the bottle as opposed in it…
