They're back again! A third shoal of Ros's 'found object fish' have swum into the gallery for our Christmas show, in response to how popular they were - to the point of sell-out - during the first two exhibitions.
Ros dreams up these fishy characters by combining wonderful vintage found objects (old sweet tins, tap parts, pulleys, vintage bottles and other domestic recycled objects) with brightly-glazed ceramic fish heads and tails. They each have their own hanging line, so they can be suspended in a window, from a beam or in a niche. Distinctive and decorative, they hold a fishy feel-good factor.
We are also showing some of Ros' fantastic spinning fish and birds, combining vintage tools and objects with ingenious animals clay forms and which, at a turn of the handle, spin around on their base. A charming talking point in any home.
