Crow’s Nest grew out of a beautifully formed piece of wood I discovered on Vancouver Island where I was hoping to catch sight of the white ravens at Qualicum. I didn’t find the white ravens, but I did discover this beautifully formed piece of wood which transformed into a boat in my imagination. My love of wordplay came together with my favorite subjects, corvids, plus my fascination with the mystique of boats, and Crow’s Nest was born. However, since corvids don’t set out to sea, their boat requires wheels and sails, a bit like prairie schooners of the Old West.
