Artist James Dodds talks about this work, the sea and rebuilding the deep sea smack Pioneer

These YouTube clips make up a film about the Wivenhoe shipwright-turned-artist-and-book-publisher James Dodds, and includes material about the deep sea smack Pioneer, which was rescued from the mud and rebuilt in the town.

It’s striking to see the state she was in when the work began, and to compare that with the proud and smart vessel she is today (see some recent shots in this gallery of photos).

I wasn’t previously of the story of the Wildman of Orford, but it was great to find out about it. I must learn more – and there’s a bit more here.

My thanks to Otis Luxton for leading me to this one!
