Ornate upcycled fabric 'Fish' hanging decoration by Jan Cooper
This Fish by Jan Cooper is a small work of art, with it's intensely creative design and fabrication. Pulped paper and glue make the shape, which is finely painted for the face by Jan and coated with resin to give a porcelain-like look. Upcycled and recycled fabric and decorations make up the overall piece, and there's a touch of Jan's glitter around the edges, along with her favourite velvet backing.
The hanging fish is 15cm across.
