Miniature Wooden Sailboat :: Bateau à voile miniature

Here is a wooden miniature sailboat that we have had since my first childhood memories… it sits on the top of the fireplace mantle, ready to sail forward into the unknown. It is made of a beautiful pale wood where you can clearly see the marbled veins of the wood. It’s strings are all broken, falling wayward, and you can still feel the woodworkers’ skill behind this work of art.

Un bateau à voile que nous avions dans notre famille et qui fait partie de mes plus vieux souvenirs… il est assis sur le manteau de la cheminée, prêt à partir voguer où le vent l’emportera. Il est fait d’un bois très pâle avec des rainures qui longent les voiles. Les cordes sont tous brisées, cassées et déboulonnées mais on peut encore sentir l’oeuvre du menuisier qui l’a créé.

Paper: Small Moleskine Sketchbook
Ink: Black Carbon Ink (Permanent)
Pen: Platinum Fountain Desk Carbon Pen, Super Fine
