There is no actual word for "driftwood" in Turkish. The Alanya people have adopted the greek word " ΥΑΛΟΣ -yalos" (coastline ) to mean driftwood. When we pick up "the beached", as we call them, the artistic work has already been done. Our job is only to put together and to bring out the beauty perfectly created by nature. We do not change the objects in any way -like carving or cutting- what you see is what we found on the beaches of Alanya.
