He Bottles His Memories

Record #:
Captain Thorvald Peders of Wilmington has been aboard sailing ships since becoming a U.S. citizen in 1914. Today, Peders spends his time building miniature ships and sliding them into bottles, a hobby he picked up while at sea. The miniatures are made with old-fashioned tools including pocketknives and sewing needles. Peders works with pine and mahogany, and his work reminds him of the years he spent on the ocean.
