Vintage Paddle DesignsCot_VintagePad_Blu_11x14 $44
Canoe and paddle building dates back thousands of years. Craftsman carefully gathered and selected wood to carve and shape into canoe ribs and parts, including the paddles used to propel them across the water. The design and carving of paddles have long been the mark of a craftsman and while materials and methods have changed over the millennia, it's amazing to see how little has changed in paddle profiles and design.
The Inspiration behind our 'Vintage Paddle Designs' Art Print
The evolution of paddle design has been almost glacial-like. I guess it's hard to perfect perfection. With so few changes in paddle profiles over time, craftsmen turned to decoration as a way of customizing their work. Painting out paddles has become a form of folk art and the paddles in this piece were inspired by some of the designs I have come across over time.
If you love the look of antique or vintage paddles, this piece is for you. It makes a great addition to any cottage or home decor.

Fab Canadian Art!
I bought the Vintage Paddle Designs print from ManMade Art. It’s a fantastic piece of art. I met Doug at the One of A Kind Show in Toronto and a few months later decided to buy the print online. The website was easy to use. I was able to quickly pick the size of the print, background and frame colour online. Emails followed confirming my purchase and advising of delivery. Great experience buying from ManMade Art.
I have been wanting to order some pieces form ManMade Art for years and finally did it! Well worth the wait! Beautiful pieces that came ready to hang up. I loved having the option of selecting a frame that worked for us and even the background colour for some. And a bonus, the package even included some instructions on cleaning to ensure they last forever. Will be ordering more pieces for other rooms in my house! Great work ManMade Art
Great, love the print and quality was to my expectation.
