I started by researching different boat types and making a lot of sketches.
At first, I thought I wanted to make a submarine. I decided no because the shape is so, well, phallic. Then I thought I might make a British style frigate, circa 1805, but the thought of all those masts and sails gave me pause.
A house boat is an interesting idea. Especially one with legs.
But I like the idea of some sort of viking long boat as well.
So I decided to make prototypes for both.
The final piece is to be constructed out of at least 75% recycled materials. I am considering using reclaimed tin. But papier mache sounds intriguing as well.
Seems like I have a few more prototypes to make before I figure out entirely which direction I am leaning.
