Nautical Creations

Light houses and things related are always near and dear to the heart of an old sailor.  As a 8 year veteran of the US Submarine Force this love comes naturally to me.  Bev and I try to visit a couple of new light houses each year to get new ideas for production of this.  Dawn took my photo of the Marblehead, Ohio lighthouse and produced the stunning photo in the photographic art page
Nautical is the area which has been the slowest in sales, do to excessive competition with imports, but we are growing now that we have moved home close to port calcite.

Large Yard Lighthouse
A stunning piece which is sure to please any light lover.  Based on the Cape Hatteras light, this piece looks lovely.  It stands about 30 inches tall, and can be equipped with a normal or low voltage light.  We have a pair at the end of the drive here at the home of Intricate Articles, one finished in red candy stripe like our local White Shoal Light, and the matching Presque Isle Green candy stripe to get the desired effect.  I put red and green low voltage lamps (click here to see an example) in these pieces to get my upbound/downbound look at the end of the drive.  They also make it easy for you to find the home of Intricate Articles if you happen by the area.   If you click on the picture, you can see the fine detail and love in this piece.  Standard finishes, such as show will be included.  We can finish to light to look like most standard tower lights if desired.  The basic light sells for $75.00, with optional light installed for $15.00 (you specify low voltage or 120 VAC
), and Fired copper or gold on the top of the light for $15.00.
