The Clipper Ship was moulded and carved in plaster, on a wooden door salvaged from an old wooden catamaran, then painted in acrylic and real thread used in the rigging.

When I was recovering from a heart operation and had lots of time on my hands I began pencil drawing and acrylic painting. Since I lived and travelled on a yacht, my favourite subject was the sea, ships and especially old sailing ships.
To help in positioning and perspective I bought a kit of the Cutty Sark and after assembly and fitting sails this became my model for all my drawings and paintings, of Clipper Ships from then on.

The boom years of the Clipper Ship Era began in 1843 as a result of the growing demand for a more rapid delivery of tea from China. It continued under the stimulating influence of the discovery of gold in California and Australia in 1848 and 1851, and ended with the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869
