Driftwood Sailboats: Sandwich
Kelly O’Hare of Sandwich, Massachusetts, uses only driftwood scavenged from local beaches in fashioning her one-of-a-kind sailboats, which range from diminutive sloops used as place card holders to waist-high rigs that rivet attention as living room décor.
For sails, O’Hare, who favors hand-stitching over glue, uses remnants of burlap, canvas, and even her grandmother’s antique dishtowels. Sails can be personalized with initials and dates (think wedding or anniversary gift) or otherwise customized to suit your fancy. No two are alike.
