Large Bait Ball

I have just finished a commission for a very large bait ball. I couldn't find a piece of driftwood large enough so I commissioned Jersey Oak to machine a 1m square piece of oak using two tree slices to retain a bark edge on all four sides.

I then hand made over 400 ceramic fish to create the bait ball. Each fish was given a different glaze and different scales. It took hours placing them in diffrent positions until I was finally happy with the result and I could glue them all on. This is the largest bait ball I have made to date and I am really pleased with it. It's home will be a lovely Jersey granite house by the sea, so I just hope my client likes it!
