This wooden skeleton fish is a marine style mobile decoration, carved and hand-painted. The head and tail are made of reclaimed fir, while the driftwood bones have been found at the beach. Furthermore, wooden beads or seeds are inserted between the bones. Resistant to heat and sun, it can be placed inside and outside the house and last over time.
Each piece differs from the other based on the availability of the available recycled materials. We collect twigs of wood sparingly. Looting the beach is not part of my philosophy, but reducing waste and plastic in our homes. Other recycled materials present in this decoration are leather discs, cut and pierced one by one.
In addition to the fishbone, the characterizing element of this mobile and practical ornament is the tail, which comes in three shapes. The colours we choose are pastel or bright acrylics such as orange or red, scratched to give a shabby effect. By adding some shells and the net you can recreate a coastal shabby environment.
