Swordfish Framed Art - Aluminium

£175.00
Description
This original framed art piece by David Raine displays a wonderfully realised aluminium Swordfish within a naturally distressed boat-wood frame.

Swordfish are found in warm waters around the world and are perhaps the most prized of sporting fish.

Perfect in any contemporary or coastal setting, art lovers and fishing enthusiasts will appreciate this depiction of one of the oceans fastest predators.

Each Swordfish is created by employing the “Cold Cast Aluminium Method” as used in making sculptures.

The technique involves blending aluminium powders with specially formulated resins to produce a material which is weighty, cool to the touch and has the same appealing look of aluminium.

The background is made from cast onyx shaded with an aqua pigment and is flecked with silver leaf which is hand applied before casting to become a part of the whole.

The naturally distressed boat-wood frame was salvaged from a 40 foot classic wooden yacht by the name of ‘Nora’.

The yacht gained some notoriety in 2015 after several attempts to sail across the Atlantic to America failed; she unfortunately faced a series of mishaps resulting in the boat being rescued nine times in only seven months. Nora is currently being renovated in Hayle harbour, Cornwall.

David’s love affair with the coast and sea developed from early childhood; with salt in his blood, it’s a theme that courses through much of his work.

Living in Cornwall, David produces a range of products that include table lamps, mirrors and small furniture pieces that represent the very essence of the shoreline.

Limited Edition

Although following the same design every casting and frame has its own qualities making each quite unique.

Size: 38 x 52 cm

If you would prefer a simpler look, we are also able to offer the swordfish mounted on a stretched and primed artists canvas and displayed within a new solid wood oak frame, lightly oiled to retain its colour.

Please note, as a handmade product completion and delivery on this item is approx 7-10 working days.
