Dana Perkins, Model Maker
Ship In A BottleIn addition to his work as a commercial artist and graphic designer, Dana is also a skilled model maker and usually makes his models "from scratch". He got his start by making ships in bottles for family members, and later, for a whiskey company's ad agency. The smallest ship in a bottle he's done was a pirate ship inside a "nip" bottle, complete with several cannon and a "jolly roger" flag.
House In A BottleDana continues to make ships in bottles, but he has also moved on to making houses in bottles and lighthouses in bottles. The house shown here is inside a one gallon jug, and it has more than 1,000 pieces. The house was actually assembled inside the bottle! Dana needed to make his own special long handled tools in order to complete this project. If you have a favorite or famous building you'd like to have put inside a bottle, ask Dana for a quote.
Friendship Sloop ModelOf course, the models he makes don't need to be inside of bottles. If you need miniature landscapes, historical dioramas, or something similar, Dana has the tools, skills and experience to create what you need from wood, foam, metal, clay, plaster and other materials. Here is a wooden model of a "Friendship sloop", one of Maine's earlier lobster boats before diesel power came along. Models can be a great way to present your ideas.
