Fish Sculpture Commission

By Ashley, 07/10/2012 9:52 am

I created this fish sculpture after I was commissioned to create a sculpture to celebrate a 6th wedding anniversary. The wife wanted to gift the sculpture to her husband who has his own stocked lake where he frequently fishes. And although he fishes for a range of species one of his favorites is the carp (Cyprinus carpio carpio). I made a number of sketches and decided to go with the stunning mirror carp variant that was originally bred by monks, centuries ago, to have less scales for the diner plate. Some of the mirror carp have a row of large scales running along the lateral line which I decided to use six scales either side to depict celebrate their 6th wedding anniversary. After settling on final sketch, having received final approval from the client, I scaled up the drawing with chalk directly onto my workshop floor and set about creating the fish sculpture. I am pleased to say both the husband and wife are very happy with the final sculpture.
