A stylised greyscale artwork named ‘Soul Vessels’ by Kirsty O’Connor.

Soul Vessels – Kirsty O’Connor

Soul Vessels is inspired by the beautiful wooden boats built by five generations of the Stewart family on Grimsay. It also relates to the mythical significance, in many cultures including the Celtic, of the boat as a carrier of the souls of the dead.

It commemorates personal losses, as well as honouring souls lost at sea in their search for a new home, linking the current migration crisis with people having had to leave these shores in the past.

25% of sales of ceramic boats will be donated to the charity Marine Offshore Aid Station
