Add a pop of personality to your bathroom, kitchen or hallyway with a group wall-mounted handmade millefiori fish.
A lovely new home gift or unusual wedding present for someone who already has the boring toaster and kettle set.
These are individually handmade - the pattern and colours are produced using the millefiori technique, which means that no two are identical.
Based on the body shape of a sardine, these come in two sizes -
- small (this listing) are between 5 and 6 inches long (12-15cm)
- medium are 10 inches (25cm) long
- beautiful permanent colours and unique designs
- small fish weigh approximately 27 grams
- medium fish weigh approximately 90g
- very easy to put up without having to dig big holes in your walls! Simply use the hanging holes on the back, or a non-damaging, removable Command Strip or two.
The medium fish are here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/607005792/large-fish-wall-mounted-unusual
Larger and smaller fish than these are available - please contact me for details.
They are single sided, with a flat, plain back for wall mounting and come with two drilled holes in the back to assist with mounting (see pictures). You can also use Command Strips if your walls are suitable.
NB You won't get the exact fish that are pictured here; please let me know what primary colour you'd like your fish to be and I will make the pattern to match.
If you'd like a specific set of different colours, (eg three blue fish, and three green) please convo me!
You can also choose which direction your fish are swimming- facing left or facing right. Left is the default.
About the pattern:
Each fish is made purely from polymer. The pattern comes from a very ancient technique called 'millefiori', which has been around since the 6th Century. In fact, pieces made using this technique were found in the Anglo Saxon / Viking burial hoard at Sutton Hoo in Suffolk, England.
All DoodlePippin pieces are created in my garden studio just outside London. I specialise in clay techniques inspired by disciplines such as Japanese sword-making and Italian glass work.
Because it's impossible to recreate my patterns, I now take high quality images of each design and use these as the basis for patterns for paper, fabric, glass and metals. Many of my designs are now available as printed-by-the-yard fabrics and papers - please see my design studio by searching for DoodlePippin on www.spoonflower.com
