The Most Awesome Ships Wheel – Part 2

BetsySteel Boat

Many thanks to Brian Holmes who returned to assemble the Worlds Most Fabulous ships wheel. There is still more to be done, but we love the results. That Octopus centerpiece is the sculpting and casting work of Michael Teasdale; video here. And the walnut rims are the work of the late great Hugh Hood. There is more to come; we need to restore the patina and add on one of Hugh’s favorite quotes to the inner rim. “I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky, And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;” — ‎John Masefield
