This lecture was made possible by the Sallie Casey Thayer Lecture Fund.

Trent Preszler makes bespoke wooden canoes at the forefront of artisanal luxury. They have been called "the most beautiful canoes in the world" and featured in Esquire, Robb Report, Financial Times of London, and The Wall Street Journal Magazine. Each canoe is painstakingly molded from hundreds of hand-cut wood strips, then finished with cast bronze trim and hand stitched leather seats. Made by private commission only, it is an exacting process that takes a year to complete. A Preszler Woodshop canoe is a functional work of art meant to be passed down through generations. His artistic practice is imbued with four elements of the outdoorsman:
wood, water, sky, and life.

Trent Preszler will be signing books at the Great Blue Heron Outdoors from 6:00 - 8:00 PM the same day.
