Check out this short film about Ray Gascoigne who builds those incredibly detailed ships that you see housed inside of bottles. In this well-made short film, he talks a bit about the process of making his extraordinary models. Here's a craftsman with a lot of patience, ingenuity, and a love for what he does.
From the video description:
Ray Gascoigne has been around boats his whole life, as a shipwright, a merchant sailor, and now as a ship builder on the smallest dry dock there is: a bottle. This short film by Smith Journal and Melbourne-based production studio Commoner picks through the wood chips to tell the story of a craft honed over 60 years, and the man behind it. A step-by-step account of the process was featured in Smith Journal volume six.
Here is where you can buy the journal with the article that features Ray Jascoigne.
