Ashley Pools 4/8 Vase

Limited Edition

Rudd are widespread in the UK, found in lowland rivers, slowing moving back waters and canals. For many people, they are considered to be one of the most beautiful of the cyprinid fish (members of the carp family) and designer Helen Dale, shares this sentiment.

Though they prefer clear waters, rich in plants, Helen’s shoal of rudd swim in the murky waters of Ashley Hall Pool, an attractive expanse of water in Staffordshire, famed for its bream, carp, perch, roach, rudd and tench. Their pale bodies are juxtaposed against a dark background, to create a sense of drama. A dark burnt metallic oxide red fades at the base to black, mirroring the depths of the river in which they swim. Helen cleverly uses sgrafitto to create fish scales, while their bodies are tinged with green and their fins with orange and red, as if dappled by the rays of a summer sun.
