Bottled History

This beaut little film about a master miniature ship-in-a-bottle builder is not something that I would usually post but the precision & patience is something I can relate to in my own artwork.

Ray Gascoigne has been around boats his whole life, as a shipwright, a merchant sailor, and now as a ship builder on the smallest dry dock there is: a bottle. This short film by Smith Journal and Melbourne-based production studio Commoner picks through the wood chips to tell the story of a craft honed over 60 years, and the man behind it. A step-by-step account of the process was featured in Smith Journal volume six. More info about the project here: Presented by Smith Journal ( A film by Commoner ( Music by Ben Yardley
