This is a custom order for two koi or other type of fish. Colour and theme is up to you. I have included a variety of examples but this is by no means the limit. Any colour (natural or un-natural) or theme (realistic, steampunk, fantasy etc) is possible.

Each Koi is around 10x 7". The pair can be displayed on a table top surface or hanging on a wall. They make beautiful displays.

FAQ
-----
Q. Can I buy one of the koi pairs in the listing photos?

All the images associated with this listing are previously commissioned pieces. As such they are already sold and cannot be replicated. These images are meant to serve as inspiration for your own personalized creation and demonstrate the breadth of possibility for what can be made.

Q. Could I select a different species of fish?

Yes

Q. What if I want additional figures, such a school of differently shaped fish?

I accommodate many types of special requests. For this you can message me to discuss the terms and I will make a custom listing for you.

Q. Can you really ship these creatures internationally?

Yes, every week!

How the sculptures are made
-----

Each sculpture is OOAk (one of a kind), handmade, dated and signed. All fine details are pieced and shaped one at a time by hand only (I use no carving tools). By virtue of this primal process, each creation is completely unique and produced in a fluid and intuitive manner. The process begins with a handmade metal armature over which light weight clay is sculpted in a process of many layers. The painting is done with acrylic or oil pigments and the embedded eyes are glass or acrylic. When complete the whole piece is glazed to intensify colour and strength. With inspiration derived from animal physiology and a love of the fantastic, grotesque and absurd, each sculpture is unique and personable. The immensely detailed craftsmanship of each sculpture is rich and thoughtful, it will never be replicated.
