VENETIAN LAGOON

NAUTICAL
Massive oak poles that were used to guide water traffic in the Venice, Italy.

Sponge-like holes in these timbers made by marine life now look like flecks of scraffito.

INSPIRATION

These oak timbers once marked the ‘water streets’ that cross the Venetian Lagoon, helping to direct boat traffic between Venice and the Adriatic Sea.

Submerged in sea water, the massive oak poles are marked by marine life that latched onto or bored into them.
