Inspiration strikes, sometimes in the most curious of places. In creating our new collection of heirloom gifts we naturally look to the world around us. Here in New England, on the Connecticut shoreline, the history and culture is rich with stories of the sea and ties to boats and sailing. The metaphorical "storm rolling in" is a common descriptor for emotions, and the sea is a popular place to go for healing and renewal.
So, it is a bit expected that boats are an image we return to in our work, as this new hand-carved ornament featuring a sail boat shows. As Louisa May Alcott wrote, "I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning to sail my ship."
