Catch me if you can 67/16 Vase


Many people love black cats. Well, perhaps not if you are a fish and the black cat is hungry. It’s all very well if a designer has hidden you among a forest of colourful water plants and flowers, but cats have flexible claws. Those agile paws might reach over and catch you. However, cats hate water and even a wet paw may be too high a price to pay for trying to catch a little Japanese fighting fish.

Emma has taken care to ensure that the fish are camouflaged among the colourful plants and flowers. This provides an artistic touch to their watery home. The cat is fighting a losing battle, mostly with himself. The water is hatefully wet; the fighting fish have no wish to be caught and the swishing of their fins and tails tell of a worrying possibility of aggression and harm to a vulnerable, wet paw. Waterlilies grace the top of the design with a dragonfly or two flitting around as a captive audience to the drama. To ensure a little calm near the base of the vase, the designer has added colourful foliage and the black cat can do nothing other than acknowledge defeat.
