Michelle is a visual artist creating works in a variety of media, from acrylic to embroidery. She is also a muralist and works as half of the duo Ilsol over the past six years. Her solo works are typically inspired by nature and often infused with a bit of mysticism.
For our last project, Michelle painted an incredible piece on a Ventana handplane. For this project, she has outdone herself!
The fin is made of Alaska yellow cedar used in the reconstruction of the Western Flyer boat, considered by many to be the most famous fishing boat in the world. John Steinbeck, Ed "Doc" Ricketts and crew sailed this 77-foot sardine boat into the Sea of Cortez in Baja California, Mexico in 1940. The following year, Steinbeck published his book, The Log from the Sea of Cortez about the adventure. Learn more about this amazing boat and Ventana's use of its wood.
This fin can be fiber glassed onto any surfboard or displayed as an art piece. You can choose a reclaimed wood base from more than ten different historical sources - original Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk redwood, salvaged elm from San Jose State University, Alaskan yellow cedar from the original Hollywood Bowl benches, Cabernet Sauvignon wine tank redwood, and many more. After purchase, we'll contact you to help you select your base which can be engraved with the Ventana logo or with a custom engraving of your choice.
This fin is glassed with sap-based Entropy Resins, soy-based Ecopoxy, and Aerialite fiberglass.
Length: 9 inches
