Strength in numbers “Heat treatment”
Our large Kingis have been used to complete this unique looking school.
Separated in the middle for a while only to join back up before moving on,
strength in numbers.
Ideally hang on Entrances, big feature walls & staircases.
Had lots of fun bringing this one to life. We were very lucky to have had the design time to spend playing around with the formation and shape of this school.
All cut from 316 marine grade stainless steel, ground, rolled and heated to bring them to life then coated with lacquer. Colours are achieved with different levels of heat. We use a small flame and lots of patience, this helps us with the control of applying the colour to exactly where we want it. It can be very easy for the colour to bleed out into the rest of the fish. We use our darker colour range along the top of the body/fillet and the middle of the tail. Then the bottom 3 fins are coloured gold giving the fish the appearance of more depth within the piece. The larger part of the body is left silver which lets the grinding flow come out on display. This is more noticeable when made with our sparse numbered schools. Can be made swimming right or left. Hand picked pieces of paua included for their eyes. Ideal as a larger statement piece. All pieces are very unique being all hand crafted no two are ever the same ……… . Easy to install with a stainless chain on the back, also makes it easy to change the angle/direction of the school once mounted on your wall.
