A little paper ship from the 'Living on the Edge' series... 

During the busyness of the day The Fleet had been carefully hiding themselves in plain sight. A trick the captain had taught them for it was not easy to hide when you were their size. However, everybody else had seemed far too engrossed in their own comings and goings to note The Fleet quietly waiting for the calm of the evening to descend. Now, in the fading light, they put out to sea and stealthily made their way around the coast evading radar with their onboard jammers. I do know what they were up to but I am unable to tell. All crew members had signed the Official Secrets Act and, as I had been heavily involved in the planning and building, I too had to sign. Suffice it to say their mission was top secret and involved much paperwork. If you do happen to spot them keep it under your hat won’t you…

This one-off sculpture is made from a repurposed damaged book and thread. It measures 50mm wide x 100mm high x 130mm long.

As the ship ages the paper may yellow slightly. Do not stand in direct sunlight.

Commission Work from Betty Pepper

Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.

Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.

This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
