Full Fathom Five limited edition delft tiles

Full Fathom Five limited edition delft tiles

These are the final 6 of the 18 limited edition delft tile designs I created exclusively for the Full Fathom Five exhibition (A Celebration of the Nautical World), at Hornseys' - the Gallery in Ripon, North Yorkshire and featuring the work of Jonny Hannah, Michael Kirkman, Ed Kluz, Emily Sutton and yours truly.

Available only from Hornseys' - the gallery, Ripon. http://www.hornseys.com/



Queequeg, the South Seas noble savage from Melville's Moby Dick.


An example of Scrimshaw, the name given to scrollwork, engravings, and carvings done in bone or ivory. Here a ship in full-sail has been etched into a whale's tooth by a scrimshander of great skill.


Moby Dick, or The Whale, by Herman Melville.


The Turk's Head, a nifty nautical knot with no end.


When the Boat Comes In. The traditional lines of a sea-shanty from the North-East.


Zephyrus, the gentle West Wind.
