Etcetera – Paul Lawrence

$3,700.00

Paul Lawrence

 

Etcetera. A naptha powered sailboat of 30 feet. Built in 1886, it was one of the earliest auxiliary powered vessels still supported by sail. Naptha is a vapour fuel derived from burning gasoline, highly volatile with little wonder only 7 survive today from several thousand built. The fantail stern, plumb bow and polished brassware brought out a charm that still exists today. Many early examples were open-hulled which suggests that Etcetera had a cabin added.

Etcetera, by Paul Lawrence, is from the PICK. Coast show, exhibited at NZ artbroker.

Paul Lawrence studied industrial product design before moving into architecture where he spent most of his working life, but it is his background of product design that set him on this line of creativity. A need to work with his hands again brought Lawrence to working with wood, inspired by boats and their beautiful lines. The boats that interest Paul are from an era where “form follows function” in crafting a representation of simple, graceful and uncluttered lines with minimal details. Vessels from the 1880s to the 1930s are of particular favour, an era where Naptha, steam and later gasoline were the main methods of propulsion.
