Baitfish school heated treated multi colour D shape
Our skinnier baitfish have an individual fish size of 140mm. We chose our D shaped backing to work on for this piece. The design has been described as a cruise flowing bait school. Quite relaxing to look at with the sparse lay out of the school. The backing plate is slightly more noticeable on these type of schools, you can see how we grind the backing to look like the water flowing over-around-through-with the fish. It also creates depth and motion drawing your eyes in for a closer look. The colouring used on this piece is achieved with heat. We get the gold-blue-purple-red look from pushing the temperature to its furthest point and stopping right on the edge, this keeps the really nice metallic look. The lower bodies are left silver just like fish.
We get this really shiny popping silver from the 316 Marnie grade stainless steel we use combined with the lacquered finish, Making the grinding flow show through. Paua is included in the eye to add another totally different colour range and shine.
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. Looks great combined with any larger fish to fill your wall or create a theme. Can be made in different colours.
