Locale: Coastal Massachusetts
Referred to locally simply as "The Cape", it's historically a summer getaway for maritime-minded tourists seeking sunny beaches and old-world charm. In other seasons, the Cape serves as an invaluable barrier island, shielding much of the Massachusetts coastline from North Atlantic storm waves.
The waters surrounding Cape Cod are treacherous; an ever-changing array of shoals. Because of this, lighthouses are plentiful and have become synonymous with the cape. Sailors from many generations have found their bearings in the otherwise dangerous waters because of these well-preserved beacons and their lesser-known counterparts, the American lightships.
Construction: This piece comes ready to hang, pre-framed in a custom, solid-wood frame. Its rich contours are carefully crafted from laser-cut layers of Baltic birch, which are hand colored and glued together with the intent that each becomes a prized conversational piece and treasured heirloom.
It was designed in the United States, crafted in a family-owned shop overseas, and imported.
