The Voyageur Spirit
Designed for spirit-leaders to usher little voyageur’s off to dreamland “The Voyageur Spirit Dream-Craft” will lull any little explorer to sleep. Built from locally grown cherry, walnut and maple this cedar-strip-styled canoe is also a cradle. Each hand-fitted wooden strip is unique and forms the cozy vessel’s bow. Designed by Karin Fish and handcrafted by her partner Paul, this one of a kind functional art piece will delight every passenger.
The miniature canoe is interactive. The craft hangs on a stand and the motion mimics a canoe travelling through water. Powered by the bowman, it swings back and forth or side to side.
Cradles have always been mildly interactive. With this in mind, Karin designed the Voyageur Spirit to be lightly interactive for lazy afternoons. By simply tugging on the mooring line, the motion of the Voyageur Spirit becomes interactive and automated. This little dream-craft is functional and soothing enough to lull any tiny passenger to sleep.
