Seek the eternal in the present,
Seek the past and the future,
Link them with the direction of your course,
For you are
You are the vessel.
The Palm Boats utilize natural materials, and each one is as unique as nature.
I was inspired to make them after creating an elephant from a palm leaf trunk awhile back. Coco palms are quite benevolent plants. In the past they were used for many things. I noticed the beautiful pods, which produce growing coconuts and thought to create canoes out of them. One thing led to another, so now there are an array of sailing vessels... 'dream vessels' perhaps...
Sails are made with linen flax, bark, cotton and/or indigo dyed handmade paper. Perota wood oiled with linseed create a foundation for most of them. Additional rocks, shells, stems, pods, wooden buttons, seaweed, willow, jute, waxed thread or small driftwood pieces may be used.
