Coarse and Saltwater Fish – Ceramic Sculptures
More recently, Neil Dalrymple has been including coarse fish amongst his ceramic sculptures. He has become increasingly fascinated by their various colours and the habitats in which they live.
As well as his more usual larger sculptures of fish, Neil has recently been producing a wide range of smaller coarse fish (10cms – 20cms) such as Tench, Carp, Roach, Rudd, Perch, Barbel, Chubb, Bream and Pike.
