Gilt Head Bream

Gilt Head Bream

A small maquette for a commission

I have a commission for a granite sculpture in memory of a very popular preson and teacher . He was very fond of fishing and so a fish will be the image . I was tring to find a way to create something which had form and mass . Fish tend to be on the flat side . Having met with every one at the school I discovered his favourite fish was a John Dory . Now I will redesign . I realise that it will be best to have the fish and the base all as one and then I will have an opportunity to be more playfull with the fins . John Dorys have extravagant fins .
