    Table from the sea's edge

    Summers Place Auctions will be selling a unique table, which helped raise awareness
    for environmental issues among some of the most influential politicians, environmental
    campaigners and showbiz greats
    . The Garden, Design & Natural History Sale on Tuesday,
    23rd June 2015 will also include a wide range of mainly contemporary design highlights,
    sculptures and taxidermy. Silas Birtwistle's table is undoubtedly a first for the auction
    house, and should appeal to anyone with an interest in the environment, politics and
    contemporary design.


    A Table From The Sea's Edge is an art project, devised by Silas Birtwistle to raise
    awareness of environmental issues and to promote conservation of the world's coastal and
    marine biodiversity. It was the artist's contribution to the UN International Year of
    Biological Diversity in 2010 and he will give a percentage of the sale to the TIDE charity,
    based in Belize (see notes), one of the four areas where he collected the driftwood for this
    project. Others include Vancouver Island, Canada; Tanzania and Borneo, Malaysia.

    Evolution Sale includes important taxidermy

    Taxidermy is a bit like Marmite, but there is no doubt that there is renewed interest in this craft, which had its heyday during the Victorian empire and lasted well into the early 20th century. Summers Place Auctions and the curator of the Evolution sale, Errol Fuller, have gone out to search for some of the best taxidermy of this period, which will be included in the second sale of its kind on Wednesday, 26th November 2014.


    Ward, Spicer, Murray of Carnforth and Van Ingen are the big names in taxidermy and there are not just one of each of their creations included in the sale, but several by the masters.
