The tuna is the Rolls Royce of fish, and this stainless steel (zeron 100) sculpture was inspired by one caught by Hamish at Manda Bay, Lamu with The Safari & Conservation Co. Having caught the tuna, Hamish then made a mould of it on the beach which he brought back to the UK for the foundry to cast.

Cast in stainless steel, this limited edition Tuna sculpture is sleek and refined, the reflective surface works particularly well if this fish sculpture is placed appropriately near water. It provides a spectacular focal point to any outdoor space but works equally well inside, sympathetic to a modern interior or contrasting delightfully with a more traditional home.

The tuna is the Rolls Royce of fish, and this stainless steel (zeron 100) sculpture was inspired from one I caught at Manda Bay, Lamu with The Safari & Conservation Co. Having caught the tuna, I then made a negative fiberglass shell of it on the beach, this negative shell was then brought back to the UK and made into a silicon rubber positive, which I then used as reference for the plaster of paris original.
