Wooden Whale-Shaped Sculptures
David Kemp's 'Wooden Whaler' is Made of Two Discarded Boats

This recycled artwork by David Kemp was created with two abandoned cove boats and the help of two friendly fisherman. Kemp notes that the popularity of catching fish with “clinker boats and cove fishing” is rapidly declining in Cornwall.

The ‘Wooden Whaler’ seems to prove that, as the two boats that make up this sculpture were discarded. With the addition of just a few more pieces of driftwood, this sculpture was complete. Kemp used the boats to form the top and bottom halves of the large whale, creating a gigantic piece of recycled art on the seashore.

The boat’s curved forms, lines and coloring is reminiscent of Native American art. It is a brilliant way to reuse the discarded boats and pay tribute to the beauty of sea life.
