This bronze salmon is so expressive and characterful that he has almost become one of the family.
As well as being an incredibly eye-catching conversation piece, he is lovely to hold, feeling weighty and cool to the touch. Over time the colouring becomes bluer, even more beautiful.
We love that this maker is not only reviving interest in the ancient Celts’ stories but also using ancient metalworking techniques - in the salmon’s case it’s the primitive way of working, known as ‘Cire Perdue’ (‘Lost Wax’). We feel a sense of connection to the past by retelling the legend as well as in knowing that bronzes have been made this way for centuries past - and, hopefully will continue to be for centuries to come.
