Bluenose was a fishing and racing schooner built in 1921 in Nova Scotia, Canada. It became a provincial icon for Nova Scotia and an important Canadian symbol in the 1930's, serving as a working vessel until she was wrecked in 1946. The name Bluenose originated as a nickname for Nova Scotians from as early as the late 18th century. This print of the original hand drawing is ready to hang in a soldered framed glass.
Framed print is 5" x 5".
The Artist/Designer: Artist Norman Stiff and his wife Pam returned to Canada after working for many years at Bothar Bui Studio, a fine art studio in Dublin, Ireland during the 1990's. Their work represents many of the much-loved Irish landscapes and symbols. Norman creates most of the pieces using the time-honoured technique of copperplate etching. His original print is hand pulled and watercolour is added to bring the piece to life. The final image is then reproduced using archival inks and paper and presented in unique handcrafted leaded glass frames made by Pam.
