My oh my, but will you just look at the wonderful work of artist Ann Wood! Exquisite, lacy, loverly pieces – all constructed with a kind of fragile and haunted grace!

Ann Wood's Ship Tea Cup

Miss Wood makes her home in New York but her delicate, pretty little birds and teacups and castles seem to belong in the midst of a fairytale!  As Ann explains so beautifully …“Much of my inspiration comes from ideas I have been infatuated with my whole life: smallness, intricacies, miniaturization, collections, repetition; lost or abandoned things discovered and rescued; the idea of haunted and enchanted places, things and creatures; the setting of a tiny stage.”

I don’t know about you, but I myself have a particularly fond and warm feeling toward of her incredible floating sailing ships – being a sailor gal myself.

Just imagine – hanging one of these from your ceiling and dreaming of salt on the wind and high adventure to come!
