The War Craft Line is built from reclaimed teak from the deck of the decommissioned USS North Carolina. The battleship was built in Brooklyn from 1937-1940 and commissioned for service in 1941, serving during World War II before being decommissioned in 1947. It is to date one of the most decorated battleships in US naval history; its sleek, uncluttered design setting a new precedent for all future ships. By exploring and referencing the forms of the battleship, the pieces create a dialogue between honoring those lost during its various campaigns and exploring the inherently violent nature of modern war craft.
