New from The Padstow Mussel Company are these stunningly beautiful Gyotaku prints from Susie Ray.
Gyotaku is a 18th/19th century technique used by Japanese Fishermen to visually record new species of fish they would catch. The original method was to use edible ink and rice paper, but Susie, looking to create a more precise finish has used paints and cotton cloth.
The fish depicted are all locally caught Cornish fish from Padstow to Newlyn.
How lovely would they look in a beach house with soft white panelled walls, lots of neutral linens and oodles of wood and basketware?
