The Beautiful ‘Cornish Fish Rubbing’ Collection by Susie Ray

Our latest collection of ‘ Cornish Fish Rubbing’ tableware is now available.

We’re incredibly excited to launch our new china range this week, and it’s already flying off the shelves! This stunning collection of beautiful prints adorning fine bone china makes for the perfect dinner setting in any home.  The collection has been produced from Susie’s original artwork in the Gyotaku style rubbing technique used by Japanese Fishermen to visually record new species or size of fish they had caught in the 18th/19th century . The original method was to use edible ink and rice paper, Susie looking to create a more precise finish uses oil paints and cotton cloth, on locally caught Cornish fish from Padstow to Newlyn. The texture of the cloth gives each image a wonderful depth and really makes the images really stand out, with amazingly fine detail.

Check our Susie’s previous blog post on the methods and technique she creates these stunning images: http://thepadstowmusselco.com/blog/rubbing-fish-a-perfect-project-for-rainy-days/
