This large colourful shoal of fish was inspired by watching a sunset over St Ouen’s Bay. The fish are glazed and layered to represent the colours of the sky as the sunsets over the horizon. This piece of Ranzo hull is complete with a Gold J Button of authenticity.

The piece measures 70cm wide x 90cm high x 19cm deep

This piece was part of my Shipwrecked exhibition which was based on a classic wooden yacht called ‘Ranzo’ that was salvaged and recycled into artwork. Pieces of hull were cut up to make a canvas for my ceramics combing the history of traditional boat building with handmade pottery.

Classic yacht ‘Ranzo’ reg No 162460 was the original prototype boat built by Robertsons in 1932 in Woodbridge, Suffolk. It was Bermudian rigged, had a length of 22ft, a beam of 7ft 2 in and a draft of 3ft. Constructed from pitch pine planking on grown oak frames with steamed intermediate timbers all copper rivet fastened.  Oak keel, deadwoods and stem and stern posts. Galvanised iron strap floors. Iron external ballast keel.

Ranzo moved to Jersey in 1936. Sadly after 80 years sailing around the Channel Islands, Ranzo had fallen into dis-repair and was destined for the incinerator. Fortunately Ranzo was offered to me for re-cycling and it immediately felt fitting that such a beautiful boat could be used as a canvas for my ceramic artwork and become the inspiration for my 10-year anniversary exhibition ‘Shipwrecked’

Each piece comes with documented history of Ranzo.
