Isaie Laflamme was a fisherman all his life. He also carved ship models and horse-drawn sleighs and wagons. He made models of the fishing boats that worked in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, they were equipped with cod lines and sails; all the equipment found on the boats. His boats were carved in cedar and painted in bright ‘as found’ colours. The vehicles in his horse drawn carvings were also painted but the horses were not.
