DECORATIVE ROPEWORK

I have been sufficiently inspired by this age-old craft of decorative knotting to learn some of the techniques and knots developed by sailors from centuries ago. Many of the pieces I have created have been crafted using the same traditional methods, using the best materials for the job sourced from overseas. 

 

From bellropes to chest beckets to mats -- commissions welcome!
