NEWMARINER KNOTWORK : CHRIS LETSCHE
Chris has been fascinated by marlinespike art since college. Marlinespike art is the creation and embellishment of items with rope and twine, brought to its height during the age of sail. Chris combines traditional marinespike techniques with modern materials and color to create unique personal, home and boat related items. Marlinspike art is multicultural just like the tall ship sailors who came from different nations, each one brought their culture to the art form.
