Fish Print and Pottery

This original print uses a Japanese technique called Gyotaku, in which a rubbing is made from the inked surface of a fish. In the 19th century, Japanese fishermen used this process to record their catch, but it subsequently became an art form. This rubbing of a 28-inch king salmon caught in Lake Ontario was created by contemporary artist Jack Brown.

The pottery fish, displayed flat or on an easel, would be an ideal accompaniment to this print.

Print: 8.5" high x 11" wide. Pottery fish: 4" high x 8" wide.
