Artist's description:
"The HMCS WRINKLE was steam-powered submersible as one can plainly see with the turbine driving hot water carried through the outer hull piping. However, upon its maiden voyage, it was discovered that the cold Atlantic waters cooled the piping within 20 m of depth and the submersible sank like a stone to the ocean floor. This is the only documented footage of the vessel and its distinctive slightly flat, irritating and quite frankly ominously unnerving warning horn".

Artist Statement:
"Mad invention, re-invention, random chance, inspiration...objects tell stories. As a metal oddment artist, I have been visiting auction houses, yard sales, surplus dealers, finding and gathering urban flotsam for about fifteen years, slowly building up a large “palette” of industrial fittings and generally odd “high tech junk”. I look for circular shapes and highly crafted components and often the pieces I come across dictate the direction of the sculpture. I get to be an artist, antique dealer, and packrat all in the same occupation."
