The piece was inspired by a love of Koi carp. Niigata in Japan is the home to the Koi industry and is renowned for rearing prize fish (due to its nutrient-rich soils).
The piece is made by kiln-carving float (window) glass by cutting out heat-resistant fibre paper. The glass then deforms at heat over the paper to create patterns. The glass was then gilded using 24 carat gold, covered in a clear varnish (to ensure longevity) and then mounted in a sympathetic black ash-effect frame. This is one of a series of two pieces I made.
