I have been incredibly moved and inspired by the excitement of the Louis Vuitton America's Cup World Series of sailing here in Bermuda! To capture this feeling, I set out to create a piece that captures the thrill of this event while also celebrating Bermuda's history of sailing.
My rendition of the Bermuda Fitted Dinghy is a whimsical take on the iconic vessel. To bring some life and movement to the piece, I carved little sailors into the boat, and added a little flag blowing in the wind. :)
Behind the Scenes in my Studio
• My designs depicting the dinghy
• Some of the tools I use to hand carve my design in wax
• Assembling each component of the design
• The finished wax carving ready for casting
On October 16th, as one of the select vendors for the LVACWS, we launched
a limited number of the Bermuda Fitted Dinghy Ornaments at our booth on Front Street.
