Baltray Ballast Table
The Baltray Ballast table. This tabletop contains found objects of iron ore ballast from the mouth of the Boyne estuary at Baltray. This heavy material was used to stabilise ships on empty return journeys possibly from the port of Drogheda and English steel towns. The base of this table has discs of heavy industrial steel also set in resin. See our videos online of the production of this piece which is a one-off.
