Sparkman's Rudder

Salvaged in the lee of Boston's double leaf drawbridge, across from the Chelsea Salt Piles, the rudder itself came from a Sparkman & Stephen's racing sailboat, circa the 1950s. Constructed of a solid bronze shaft that weighs about 35-40 pounds, the rudder was made with hand carved wooden planks —
like tiered piano keys stacked upon one another.

 

The wooden rudder was clear-coated with an epoxy enamel high-gloss to give it is unbelievable luster of greens and yellows and blues, paired with gold and hints of copper in the bronze, which was sandblasted, ground, and polished.

 

A beautiful wall piece used to accent a wall in a home or office. Can be hung in multiple orientations display applications.
