Faering - Goose, Fish, Star Moon
Faering - Goose, Fish, Star MoonA new style here - a thin hull allowing for the addition of silhouetted fish through the bottom, as well as a multilayer fabric sail with varying cutouts and fabric to allow the light through. The ship plans are based on one of the boats found at Gokstad. 
Phases of the Moonship (May 2017)
Phases of the Moonship (May 2017)Just completed (May 2017), this whaleship is the tallest so far - nearly four feet in height. The hull is built using an adaptation of traditional lapstrake hull construction techniques (where each board overlaps the one beneath it), but using cloth instead of wood. This method allows for more ambitious curves to be attempted - as well as lets the light through. The 8 sails are all double-sided linen applique, of the phases of the moon. 
Starship - Port Side
Starship - Port SideAt long last - the newest ship in the fleet: "Starship". This whaleship is the largest so far, at nearly 3 feet in length and height. Each of the twelve sails are double sided, with thousands of individually hand-embroidered stars on the front side, and applique sky on the rear side. Light is from a LED-bulb.

Kayak Lamp - Red and Black
Kayak Lamp - Red and BlackThis kayak-inspired lantern - the "Eye-yak" is made with birch plywood sawn and stitched together by hand (in the manner of a true wooden stitch-and-glue kayak) and lined with textured muslin cloth to allow light to shine through. The lamp is powered with an LED light-bulb and includes a hand-formed wooden base.

poem moth, 2013
poem moth, 2013Please bring strange things. Please come bringing new things. Let very old things come into your hands.Let what you do not know come into your eyes.Let desert sand harden your feet.Let the arch of your feet be the mountains.Let the paths of your fingertips be your mapsand the ways you go be the lines on your palms.Let there be deep snow in your inbreathingand your outbreath be the shining of ice.May your mouth contain the shapes of strange words.May you smell food cooking you have not eaten.May the spring of a foreign river be your navel.May your soul be at home where there are no houses.Walk carefully, well loved one,walk mindfully, well loved one,walk fearlessly, well loved one.Return with us, return to us, be always coming home.- Ursula LeGuin
