THE SHIPS are hand made with natural materials. The models are introduced piece by piece, and are assembled inside the bottle using tools specially made for this purpose by the artisan. The ships are for sale. The price is published in each page. If you are interested in buying one, please visit our sales page.
THE BOTTLES used are mostly recycled spirits bottles from all around the world. The size and shape will determine the kind of ship that is crafted for it.
