Fish Tale – A Cornish Mine
This highly original driftwood art fish features a landscape that includes a Cornish Mine, a Schooner at sail and a wealth of other detail by artist Laurence Henry.
Using a complex relief design full of pattern and texture, Laurence has created a beautiful wooden fish full of elaborate and intricate detail.
The wonderfully realised design has been finished with a copper stud eyes and encrusted blue green copper tail.
Created upon a driftwood find, Laurence uses a variety of techniques and found objects to create his highly desirable works of coastal art.
The double sided design reveals a simpler fish on the reverse with a simple blue head and blue eye.
His eye catching designs look wonderful in any setting, but for added impact could also be suspended from the lure with thread to gently spin on the breeze displaying both sides at once.
He has worked as a freelance artist to Liberty, Parker Knoll, Habitat and Gallery Five, before eventually taking full time employment with the BBC as a graphic designer illustrating material for Play School and Jackanory.
Since his early retirement in 1999, he has been able to concentrate on his artwork, which has always been an important focus to his creativity.
His work is currently exhibited at various galleries around the country.
