About the Sculpture

This fish design forms part of Bills growing collection of  birch plywood sculptures. These are hand carved from this contemporary medium and finished with a combination of wax and oil.  The John Dory is mounted on a granite base.

Inspiration

I’ve always been fascinated with the undersea world (I’m a child of the Jacque Cousteau era), and this is apparent in many of my sculptures. Other examples of this are: Nautilus, Manta ray and Spanish Dancer, to name just a few. The John Dory is a beautiful fish and is rarely seen at its best when spotted on a fish mongers slab.
