Shipbuilding

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Brooklyn artist Ann Wood occasionally posts downloadable templates so that fans can make their own versions of her fanciful constructions… I make them occasionally with my little pal next door.  We’re going to do the boat (find it here), but here’s the gift one I made for her to get us started.

The possibilities are endless with Ann’s templates, and soon she will be selling a more complex pattern for fancier ships… sounds like fun!  But if you want to see just how beautiful Ann’s ships get, take a peek over here.  Rather than a papier mache boat (like the template), some of these ghostly vessels are sewn from antique textiles over a wire form.  Dreamy.
