︎︎︎ Fogo Finds

Cast bronze key fobs for the rooms of the Fogo Island Inn on Fogo Island, a very special island in front of the coast of Newfoundland in Canada. Twenty nine objects that were found washed along the shore, in a fisherman's shed or even from the local supermarket were cast in bronze to become key fobs for the hotel rooms. From lucky snub-nosed cod head to an iron nail stolen from the first European settlers by the native Beothuk Indians and modified to become a spear head, each fob tells a small or large story that relates to the island. Together they become the chapters of a book about the present and past daily life on the island and its rough nature.
