This series is inspired by Lake Ontario and Lake Erie where we have spent many hours swimming, beach combing and watching the sailboats. Each Regatta set includes three sailboats with glass sails measuring 6 x 4, 5.5 x 3.5 and 5 x 3 inches. The sails are set into grooves that we cut into rocks and wave-rounded porcelain and brick from the beach. They are secured with a waterproof glue so they can be enjoyed outside or inside.
The Toronto Regatta comes in four sail colours - dark turquoise, light turquoise, blue and white. Turquoise are set in white porcelain bases, blue are set in cream coloured brick bases and white are set in red brick bases, all found on the shores of Lake Ontario in the heart of the city.
Stay tuned for the debut of our next line in the Regatta series - Kingston Regatta with sails set in limestone and Port Stanley Regatta with sails set in the water-smoothed rocks from lake Erie, where you may even find a fossil or two.
