"When I get the time when I'm not raking, whenever I'm near water, I'll beach comb for bits of wood, feather or anything else that appeals and make some boats."

Lovely - quite apart from the craft and concept, the photography captures a quality of the water beautifully too.

This is beautiful and kind of sweet. Thanks for the link!

Abiezer, I know what you mean-- especially those shots of the little boats on clear, pebbly water in Greece.

Wow! Also check out his Rake Art and Eggs. He says on the blog that he'll be self-publishing a book on things you can do at the beach.

That's utterly charming, and maybe the first post that makes me want to go to the beach and make things. Thank you!

I make boats on the beach too. But my photos of them aren't as nice.
(Mainly because I get ambitious and then it's dusk by the time they're ready to set sail :-)

Wonderful imagery. He's clever. Maybe next time I go to the beach I won't be such a slug and I'll make some little boats.
