About Rainbow
My first piece depicts the legendary J-class racing yacht
Rainbow, in a traditional half hull carving. It is carved to scale using measurements transferred from blueprints, then cut, scraped, and sanded down to final dimension. The hull is a lamination of quarter sawn red oak, which I chose because of the dramatic ray flecks pointing forward. On top of that is mahogany, a traditional maritime timber, which makes the sheerline, and the boats features visible. The white boot stripe runs along the boat’s waterline.
