HMS Orpheus, Commemorative Crosses for three sailors, Maritime Museum, 2013

White-washed crosses for three young men who, before they sailed on HMS Orpheus, were a baker (rolling pin), carpenter (mallet) and a cobbler (shoe last). Driftwood picked up from Raumati beach. It's form is like the surging water, which smashed the ship apart after hours & hours being stuck on the Manuaku Bar in 1863. The implements are attached using sailor's slip knots.
