Come Sail Away

This winsome nautical sculpture might just inspire you to set your sails and explore the world―but its origin is surprisingly landlocked. Its the work of husband-and-wife team Ben and Kate Gatski, who handcraft this seafaring sculpture from reclaimed, weatherworn farm machinery at their barn workshop in rural Pennsylvania. The pieces of the compass are cut, welded and hammered by hand from steel, and then given a finish of water-based enamel to protect their shine and coloring. The wooden boat that anchors the piece is crafted from the planks of an antique barn. Displayed it inside or out, it makes a charming addition to your living room or patio, whether you are an avid boater or just long for adventure. Handmade in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania.

Ben and Kate Gatski want to honor agriculture through art. They hand select old machinery found on local farms. The process involves tearing apart large equipment to get smaller parts for the sculptures.

Both Ben and Kate worked in agriculture prior to their current work. Ben started his own organic dairy business at 19. And Kate worked for the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture, which helps to inform farmers about organic and sustainable techniques. They began their metal business in 2004.
