Stacy requested that I create a set of cotton and paper ornaments reminiscent of the early folk style popular for during the late 1800s. This design is based on a very old sailing vessel ornament that had a broad sail and oval boat with a little scrap rider. I enjoyed putting together a fun combination of colors, shapes, and textures, all with old materials and beautiful fluffy antique cotton batting. Especially playful is the antique Dresden paper blue railing and the antique scrap General Grant in Civil War uniform - framed in gold Dresden paper medallion - on the sail.
Lovingly handmade and signed by Gail Giaimo.
