Daise

Daise

In 1939, Isle of Hope only had a few floating docks, which meant that marina boats were moored out in the Skidaway River. To prevent passing boats from colliding at night, Willie Daise, Isle of Hope’s own lighthouse, lit a kerosene lantern on the mast of every anchored boat every evening, and rowed back out to extinguish them every morning.

This beautiful rhythm—Daise’s lit and unlit lanterns—are seen in this geometric pattern of linear navy and ivory shapes. Our Daise Seascape is a nautical toile that pays homage to his keeping all boats safe in shared waters.
