Wall Hanging Flounder, 45 cm long.
A fisherman who had previously bought a Dog Fish from me, commissioned a stoneware Flounder to hang together with it in his home. That started a very difficult making process! Due to the flat nature of the Flounder, tensions are created in the clay during the the drying and firing processes, resulting in the piece splitting in half during any part of the firings. A slight nightmare when having made 10, only 3 have survived so far. If you find yourself the owner if this special piece, count yourself lucky.
