shop Scrimshaw

Scrimshaw, the technique of hand-engraving + inking illustrations into shells, gemstones and other materials, dates back to whalers of the late 18th century; scrimshanders of yore created their hand-etched pieces to pass the time at night aboard their ships. Each illustration in the Scrimshaw collection is hand-carved by Hannah, combining sentimentality with the endless inspiration the ocean provides, and serves as a symbol of protection, resistance, and nostalgia.
