Land Water Vessel

This is a 14’ long open woven canoe made on site at Taigh Chearsabhagh Arts Centre, North Uist, from willow, hazel, heather and salmon skins which are wrapped around the gunwales, struts, keel and paddle. The work was part of a one person show called Land Water and Language, made after the experience of a two day canoe journey across North Uist with Andy Mackinnon in 2009.
