Carp And Moon
Koi ponds have long been symbols of repose and good fortune. Within this show-stopping composition, carp move languidly amongst floating lotus leaves; a serene moon is reflected as the focal point of the design.
The koi carp lend a subtle feeling of life and movement, their whiskers, fins and scales rendered in fine detail. The lustre of the silk mimics the effect of rippling water, giving a sense of calm to the composition.

Each painted panel begins its life as a length of raw silk which we size with a natural adhesive so that it receives paint without bleeding. We often brush the silk with iridescent pearl washes to add further lustre before backing with traditional rice paper. This forms the extraordinary canvas on which our artists work their magic.
