Ship In A Bottle

I read an article yesterday on The Fox is Black about a film that was produced for the Australian magazine, Smith Journal. Ray Gascoigne is an 85 year old gentleman who has spent his life either by or on the water. A retired sailor, he has been building and putting miniature ships in bottles for 60 years.

He creates a little slice of beauty and one of these ships would be a treasure to have. Those bottles seem to encapsulate adventure, romance, whimsy and magic all plugged up and contained by a cork.
