Soul Vessels are inspired by the beautiful wooden boats built by five generations of the Stewart family on the island of Grimsay and the mythical significance, in many cultures including the Celtic, of the boat as carrier of the souls of the dead. The boats have the names of the individual Grimsay boats they are based on, which can still to be seen in Uist.
