SHOAL, the long wave, with Haiku poem
A shoal of hand sawed fish, tied together to a wave of fish.
Original and One Of A Kind airy sculpture: The curves and delicate shine suggest the flow of water and transfer a pure atmosphere in any environment.
Great art for an entrance, as an eye-catcher in your living room, as an art statement in your office, or to furnish a bedroom wall completely Zen or Feng Shui.
It's also possible to lay the sculpture flat on the ground as a kind of long narrow metal carpet.
I (hand) sawed the fish out of 1.1 mm sheet aluminum and sanded them, piece by piece. Then I pierced them and tied them together into the shoal shape with thin plated wire.
When I was making this Shoal I was inspired a little poem (called Haiku) which I stamped on one of the fish.
On the reverse side of another fish I stamped the title of the work, my name and date. You can hang this Shoal facing backside or frontside.
The VERY light sculpture is somehow bendable to hang to the wall on one hook and then it becomes a 3 dimensional shape. If you want it flat to the wall just use one or two extra hooks.
The Shoal is made of aluminum: it weighs about 700 grams and measures when hung approx. H 180 cm (6 ft ) W 50cm (20'')
I designed 'Shoal I' in 1995. It was followed by Shoal II and III. Every one of them was handmade and, although similar, a One of a Kind. There's also a copper version available, the golden Flow, ressembling a shoal of Goldfish, a copper Blue Shoal and Shoal and Algae, a combination of aluminum and copper
