The Rainbow Fish, Mottisfont Stream, Hampshire, UK 2017

In December 2017 Alex was commissioned by the National Trust at Mottisfont, Hampshire, to create an installation of glass fish in the stream that flows from the ancient font in the grounds.  These fish were installed over the winter.  The iridescent glass from which they were makde providing sparkle on sunny winter days.
