"A man who works with his hands is a laborer;
a man who works with his hands & his brain is a craftsman;
but a man who works with his hands, his brain & his heart is an Artist."
-Louis Nizer, 1902
With positive build-site and business developments, this week has been a good one.
In the background, exciting projects are in the works as well: slowly and steadily we progress towards launching not only our Kickstarter campaign but also opening up to sell shares in Ceiba herself.
One of the higher-tier crowdfunding items available will be an original carving for our ship Ceiba.
Crafted by Québécois Lynx Guimond - Co-Founder of this very venture & lauded woodworker responsible for the figureheads of Europa, Morgenster and Tres Hombres, etc., - the intricate piece of art is made of locally sourced Costa Rican Cedro.
Full of depth, this salient carving will incorporate elements key to the vision of the entire project: the ships helm to guide the project, a tree to represent regeneration and the circles of life.
his one of a kind design is a celebration not only of the ship & her build, but of the beauty of the natural world in which she will sail.
