Product Details


This Ceramic sculptural wall art is inspired by still life from the kitchen table, fresh fish and vegetables waiting to be prepared. I use many different coloured glazes, all made by me, and apply the glaze in a painterly manner, just like I would use paint on a canvas. I often use different firing techniques for elements of the composition, in this case the plaice and little whitebait fish were Raku fired, and old Japanese technique firing in outside kiln and smoking the items in sawdust after firing. I often include flea market finds of cutlery in my mixed media artworks.
The wood box frame is handmade for me by a lovely gentleman in my village and I stain the wood and use lime wax so it has a distressed ‘aged’ effect, giving it the authenticity of am old kitchen table.

Delivery for overseas will be quoted on request with full address, this will be quoted at cost.

Care Instructions:

To remove dust gently wipe over with soft damp cloth, or spray or splash over with water and let it drip off immediately


I am often inspired by the wonderful photography in the lovely foodie magazines, especially one magazine from a well known supermarket….. illustrating the fresh food for you to try in their recipes! In this work I humouredly made the Plaice look rather menacing with the three pronged fork (I’d found in a Mallorcan flea market) in front of him, as though he was giving the whitebait and chillies some aggravation before their destiny in the recipe!
